The first car to be made in what later became the Irish Republic, the Burke used a 24/30hp French-built engine, though the chassis and gearbox were of their own manufacture. Final drive was by chains. They said that they only bought in parts which they were unable to make themselves. The Burke made its appearance at the first Irish Motor Show in January 1907, and was still listed in 1908. The company were also agents for the Astahl car.
