Byrne Clan Sweater


Byrnes, O’ Beirne, O’ Byrne, Ó Broin.

Byrne, Ó Broin in Gaelic, is now one of the most numerous names in Ireland. The name comes from the word “bran”, which is Gaelic for ‘raven’. Homeland of the Byrnes, originally O’ Byrne, is Co. Wicklow in the south east of the country. Byrne is now one of the top ten most common surnames in Ireland. 

The hand knit Byrne sweater has a moss-filled chevron centre stitch, flanked by the cable, braid, and link stitches on either side. The moss stitch represents nature, the cable represents good luck, and the link stitch is symbolic of the unbroken chain between the Irish who emigrate and those who remain at home. 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.





Authentic Aran 100% Wool Made in Ireland

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.
