Emerald Software Ltd.

From If It Moves, Shoot It!'s manual, circa 1989: Emerald Software was founded in early 1988 with financial support from the Irish government. Based in Waterford (home of the world famous crystal), the company has rapidly established itself as a leading computer games development house in Europe. The workforce includes 17 programmers and five graphic artists. Of course, being dedicated computer gamers, there is not much time for hobbies outside of work -- except for that other famous Irish pastime. Which means that the bars of Waterford hear rather more talk of computer games than they did before the arrival of Emerald Software!

Europress Software Ltd.

Formed by chairman Derek Meakin in 1965, EuroPress' rapid development was accelerated by the computer boom in the early 80's. Its software development, magazine publishing and exhibition companies achieved phenomenal growth with annual turnover well in excess of 15m and employing over 250 people. Subsequently, the exhibitions company was sold to Blenheim Exhibitions and the magazine publishing business was sold to giant American publisher IDG, leaving principal directors free to concentrate on EuroPress Software. By 1990 EuroPress had become the fifth biggest software house in the UK. In 1999 it was taken over by American company Hasbro before it was sold back to its original owners ‘The Meakin family’ in July 2001. Under the control and guidance of the Meakin Family, Europress continued to produce an extensive list of quality educational titles ranging from TV Celebrity names such as Postman Pat through to their highly acclaimed SAT’s and GCSE range which are continuing to prove very popular along with the specialist A level revision titles in a large range of subjects.
