Carrich du Suir

I found this little cruet set in the thrift shop. It says a present from Carrich du Suir. At first with a name like that I thought it might be from France, but no it turns out it's from Ireland. It comes from the Irish translation, Carraig na Suire, which means "Rock of the Suir"

My friend Maria was with me and said that she had seen it a view days earlier when she had been in the thrift, but couldn't make it out, but thought I would know. Well I think it's pepper, the lidded pot is mustard and the open dish is the salt. Do you think it's from before WWI?

Well in any case the little cruet set is sweet.
