WH Ireland Group plc


(“WH Ireland” or the “Company”)


Director’s Dealing


On 1 December 2011 the Company was informed that, on that date, Paul Compton acquired 65,000 ordinary shares of 5 pence each (“Shares”) at an average price of approximately 55.3 pence per Share.  Following the acquisition, Mr. Compton holds 1,175,348 Shares representing 5.06% of the Company’s total voting rights. 


This amends the position set out in the announcements of 2 November 2011 and 28 November 2011, both of which overstated Mr. Compton’s shareholding by 150,000 Shares, and his percentage of total voting rights, due to a clerical error.


Additionally, 2,128,000 Shares are held jointly between Mr. Compton and the Company’s Employee Share Ownership Trust as detailed in the announcement of 2 November 2011.
