Tipperary Crystal & Kavanagh Giftware Settle Trademark Dispute

A resolution between the owners of Tipperary Crystal and a Co. Wexford giftware company, concerning the alleged imitation of branding trademarks, has been worked out to the satisfaction of both traders, the Commercial Court heard yesterday.

Allied Imports, which owns the Tipperary glassware brand, had sued Kavanagh Giftware for allegedly using its branding. Tipperary Crystal claimed that Kavanagh Giftware had used grey and white graphics that would have led their customers to believe that they were purchasing Tipperary Crystal mugs, cups and other items at its premises at Market Square, Templeshannon, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford and online.

While accused of distributing the products to other retailers, Kavanagh Giftware had totally rejected all the claims made against their company, including the alleged infringement of Allied Import’s copyright and intellectual property rights.

The case had been admitted unto the fast track Commercial Court listings, but Mr Justice Brian McGovern heard yesterday that the case could now be struck out.
