Murphy’s Ice Cream raises €75,000 in Ireland’s biggest ever P2P loan

Kerry ice cream maker Murphy’s has acquired €75,000 in Ireland’s biggest ever P2P loan.

Murphy’s Ice Cream co-founder Sean Murphy and Linked Finance CEO Niall Dorrian enjoy an ice cream at one of the company’s shops.

The funds were raised through the online lending platform of peer-to-peer lending company Linked Finance in just one day and 20 hours.

It’ll be used to help finance the fit-out of a new shop and show factory in Dingle.

Murphy’s Ice Cream was established in 2000 by the brothers Sean and Kieran Murphy, and now has stores in Dingle, Killarney, Dublin, and at the Cliffs of Moher
