Manufacturing moon rovers in Cork in time for Christmas brings a number of challenges.

Dan O'Mahony works alone in a farm shed a few miles outside Cork city, assembling toys for the Christmas market. He has hopes that the moon rover will be a big seller this year.

He's a one-man business operation. A small industry, self-supporting.

Dan tells his story of starting out small and the challenges and obstacles he faces as he endeavours to build his business. For Dan, success is all about supplying a quality product. 

Manufacturing something just to make a quick buck, that's not on.
