W.H. Ireland Group

Offer Talks Terminated

W.H. Ireland Group PLC
08 February 2008

                             W.H. Ireland Group plc    
                        ('W.H. Ireland' or the 'Company')
                             Offer Talks Terminated

On 5 October 2007, W.H. Ireland announced that it had received a number of 
approaches regarding a potential offer for the Company and subsequently 
confirmed on 27 December that it continued to consider such approaches.

Following further discussions, it has not been possible to reach agreement on 
terms of a formal offer which the Board of W.H. Ireland feels adequately 
reflects the value of the Company and which it is able to recommend to 
shareholders.  As a consequence, the Board of W.H. Ireland announces that all 
discussions relating to an offer have now ceased and that the Company is no 
longer in an Offer Period.

As previously indicated, W.H. Ireland will announce its preliminary results for
the year ended 30 November 2007 on 25 February 2008.
