Dragon’s Den Irish Inventor launches his new product in Manchester

The Manchester based inventor Teirnan McCorkell whose Irish roots stem from County Tyrone has just won £41,000 worth of investment from investor Sara Davies on the popular BBC Two’s Dragons Den programme.

Teirnan founded a tool company in 2018 to help produce his latest product called ‘PipeEasy’ and the official UK Product launch will be on Friday 28 February at the award winning St Kent’s Irish Club in Fallowfield in South Manchester.

The star studded launch kicks off at 5pm with a free demonstration of what the tool can do followed by a complimentary drinks reception from Didsbury Gin at 7pm and a chance to meet TV presenter and Dragon investor Sarah Davies. Teirnan has also arranged for some live entertainment from X Factor star Rebecca Duncalf and a celebrity Darts challenge and free nibbles on the night. The evening which is free admission will be raising money for the Alzemiers Society.

When asked about the event’s launch Tiernan commented “We are delighted to have the official UK launch in Manchester at my local Irish Club. It promises to be a fantastic night I have even managed to persuade another Dragon Den winner Alastair Bell from Northern Ireland the inventor of the Irish produced ‘Black Butter’ is to fly over to Manchester to launch his product in the UK on the night.”

‘PipeEasy’ is a surface measuring tool enables uses to precisely mark and cut out holes for pipe work ensuring there are no gaps left around the pipe work. The tool is aimed professional tilers and flooring specialists as well as the DIY market.

The idea for the “revolutionary ruler” which transforms the way you cut wood, tiles and most surfaces to fit around pipes came about when Tiernan was working as a flooring specialist in Manchester.
The tool comes with attachments to cut around standard pipe sizes of 10mm, 15mm, 22mm, 32mm and 40mm. The main advantage of the surfacing measuring is that it allows users to precisely cut around pipework, giving a circular finish rather than a square-cut finish.
Since the show the entrepreneur has been working with the Dragon investor to get the tooling in place to take the product into full mass production and has secured a worldwide patent on it to protect the product on a global scale. After the UK launch in February the next stage is to conquer the European market, then onto America and finally to take it global.
The tool will retail at £24.95, but there will be a special discounted price for the product at the launch night.
