GlenAran is a brand passionate about Irish Craft & Design inspired by the vision of Cork woman, Maureen MacCarthy.  Growing up in the small rural fishing village of Glengarriff, Co.Cork in the early 1940’s, Maureen developed an appreciation for the simplicity and beauty of honest Irish craftsmanship from a young age. With no shops or retail outlets and little commercial opportunities, Maureen’s family was self-sufficient, relying on the craft of their hands to make ends meet and provide for their children.

Today the GlenAran Brand continues to grow and flourish under Maureen’s watchful eye and is as passionate about sourcing quality, colourful, handmade knits and unique and innovate, local craft as it is about telling the stories behind the artisans that are now part of the GlenAran family story.
