- we will endeavor to repair the goods, or
- we will replace the goods with goods which do conform to the contract, or
- we will take the goods back and refund you all amounts paid by you under the contract.

- OUR RIGHT TO CANCEL OR VARY
Murphy of Ireland reserves the right to cancel or vary on-line orders if: we are not able to supply any of the goods for genuine reasons beyond our control, e.g., because we did not have the goods in stock, or sufficient goods in stock to meet all our orders, and we are not able to obtain the goods from our suppliers at all or in time to meet the delivery timescales; or our web site and/or ordering web pages contained any error, including in relation to the description or price of any of the goods; or if any of the goods are not in stock or insufficient goods are in stock to meet all our orders and cost of acquiring the goods to supply to you is higher than when your order was submitted or the cost of delivery is higher than when your order was submitted, Murphy of Ireland shall be entitled to cancel the contract as a whole or in respect of those goods, in which case we will offer you a full refund, and we may also at the same time give you an offer to continue with your order subject to variations, or give an alternative offer, in which case we will identifying any changes to the goods, the price and delivery charges, and delivery timescales, and we will state how long that offer will remain open. These will be your only remedies and claims against us in such circumstances.
We may on occasion, at our sole and absolute discretion, decide not to exercise or wait before exercising our rights. If we do so, we shall still be entitled to insist on the strict terms of the contract later on.

The contract shall be governed by the laws of Ireland and the Irish courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction.
