About Us

Sherwoodsdigital was founded by George G. Sherwood in Kilkenny in October 1953. Prior to this, George trained as an electronic engineer with EMI (HMV) London in their servicing lab performing final tests on high quality tape recorders in the early 1950's. With this immense electronic experience, George returned back to Ireland to open his first shop in 86 High Street, Kilkenny selling and servicing valve radios.

Ever the entrepreneurial company, sherwoodsdigital were quick to introduce new technologies as they developed, such as televisions and labour saving kitchen appliances. By renting these products they became affordable for the typical household. This early equipment was notoriously unreliable and the engineering background of the company meant it was well placed to develop a large service infrastructure to repair them.

Sherwoodsdigital then moved into larger premises at 30/31 High Street, Kilkenny and then expanded into Waterford in 1992 followed by Carlow and Clonmel. Management is still under George G. Sherwood whilst 2nd generation Management under George E. Sherwood and Jeremy C. Sherwood is in place meaning the company was, and remains to this day, a true family business. In June 2015, the company outgrew its High Street premises and moved to a much larger premises at Unit 5, Kilkenny Retail Park, Smithlands, Waterford Road, Kilkenny.
