Perkins 4.108 Mechanic needed in County Cork, Ireland

I realize this is probably a long shot but does anyone have a contact for a reliable marine diesel mechanic in Ireland? Engine has a few issues that are a bit past my ability and I don't have time to deal with the issue myself. Currently in Crosshaven. Thanks!

KDH. The local main dealer for Caterpillar and Perkins marine is called Finning, and they are in Doughcloyne Industrial Estate, Sarsfield Road, Cork. Their local telephone number is 021 480 1400. They are probably on the expensive side but there are diesel mechanics in Crosshaven boatyard. Alternatively try the local directory for MP Crowley, they supply plant and machinery and will have mechanics familiar with the 4108. or any local tractor dealer/repair as the same engine is fitted to Massey Ferguson tractors.
I hope this is helpful to you.

KDH, just a little thing you should know. If you deal with a small or family company to get your repairs done, mention from the outset that you are looking for a good job, well done, and ask if they do a good rate for a cash job, no invoice is needed. You should get around a 20% discount.
Good Luck.
