Burke Clan Sweater


Bourke, De Búrca, De Burgh

De Búrca was originally de Burgo, and is the most common Irish name of Norman origin. The Burke name is most often associated with the province of Connacht where the family was granted large tracts of land during the 12th century following the Anglo-Norman invasion. Today, it is ranked as fourteenth most numerous surname in Ireland, and remains strongest in its homeland of county Galway in the west (read more on the Burke name history in Ireland).

The hand knit Burke sweater has a moss filled diamond as a central panel, flanked by a panel of blackberry stitch and two rows of lobster claws on each side. The diamond stitch represents wealth, the blackberry stitch symbolises the Holy Trinity, and lobster claw is a wish for prosperity. This beautiful Aran sweater has been hand knitted in the traditional báinín (pronounced ‘baw neen’) colour, the natural white of the wool. It comes to you complete with a clan history and crest. It is made of 100% pure new wool, is water repellent and breathable. It has been hand crafted in the traditional Irish style, and, with care, will last a lifetime.

Size Guide

Please remember, wool is a natural fibre and has a strong element of flexibility. If your garment feels slightly small at first, give it a gentle stretch which will loosen the fibres in a way that will not damage the garment or cause it to lose its shape.

Where a specific size is available for a garment: To calculate the size sweater you require simply measure across the chest of your favourite sweater in inches and double that value.
