cutoff of September 2021, the timber market in Ireland was experiencing significant challenges due to a variety of factors. One of the main challenges was the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which disrupted supply chains and led to shortages of materials. In addition, there were concerns about the sustainability of timber harvesting practices and the impact on the environment.

At the same time, there was also a growing demand for timber products in Ireland, driven in part by increased construction activity and the popularity of timber as a renewable and environmentally friendly building material. This demand was putting pressure on domestic timber suppliers and leading to increased imports from other countries.

The Irish government has taken steps to address some of these challenges, including investing in sustainable forestry management practices and promoting the use of timber in construction projects. However, the long-term outlook for the timber market in Ireland remains uncertain and will depend on a range of factors, including global economic conditions, supply chain disruptions, and environmental policies.
