About Lee Valley Ireland

Lee Valley Ireland has designed and made high quality clothing in the village of Inchigeela, West Cork Since 1986.

Starting with 'The Grandfather Shirt', Denis Hurley saw a market for an Irish traditional shirt and began drafting patterns and cutting fabric, calling on the sewing skills of local women who worked from their own homes.  Having fond memories of his own grandfather wearing this type of collarless shirt in days gone by, he set about to rekindle this traditional garment.

Over three decades on from cutting his first grandfather shirt, the company remain committed to offering high quality Irish country clothing to be treasured forever offering a range of Shirts, Nightwear, Tweed and Outerwear..
