Made by John Hanly & Co. they have long-established roots, known to be one of the few remaining traditional textile weavers and manufacturers in Ireland. Family-owned and operated from Ward’s native Co. Tipperary, Hanly has special meaning at Biddy Murphy because it reminds us of home. What started in 1893 remains true today as Hanly still operates from their gorgeous mill close to the banks of the River Shannon, near picturesque Dromineer on Lough Derg. Our friend, Brian Hanly, is the third-generation to carry on the family’s tradition of quality woven textiles.
Biddy Murphy was launched by Ward Gahan in 2004, who was inspired to share his joy of Ireland. He wasn’t pleased with how his homeland was portrayed as he poured through mail-order catalogs selling so-called Irish goods when it was something clearly made in China. Each time he traveled to Ireland he would have requests from friends and family to bring back something which fueled his desire for authentically Irish goods. Named after Ward’s mum, Bridget, aka Biddy Murphy, a true trendsetter of her day- she drove a car when most women were simply passengers, loved fashion and had a deep appreciation for the traditional methods of crafting. Ward has created an Ecommerce store for Biddy Murphy to share his and his mum’s desire to share the joy of Ireland and other worldly experiences.
