Who is Stuart just out of interest?

You can maybe delete wired-connection-1 from the list or stop network
manager from being the controller of your network connections, or even
just setup wired-connection-1 to have a static IP.

Do you have the following line in your ifcfg-eth0 file:

I believe the network service will look at all the ifcfg-* files found
in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and read them to see what action needs
to be taken.
you can try the follow command to see which have been brought up and
listed as active
/service network status

/Hopefully this should be correct and helpful.
