Callaghan Clan Sweater


Callahan, Calligan, Kealahan, Kelaghan, O’ Callaghan, O’ Kelaghan, Ó Ceallacháin.

The O’Callaghan clan originates in the province of Munster in the south of Ireland. It is likely that the name came from Ceallachan, who was the king of Munster in the 10th century. The family was one of the most powerful in Munster, and was involved in a prolonged feud with one of the other dominant clans, the Mac Carthys. Today, the name is ranked as 43rd most numerous in Ireland, and is strongest in the province of Munster.

The hand knit Callaghan sweater has a honeycomb centre panel and is flanked by zig-zags on either side. The honeycomb stitch symbolises work, and the zig-zags represent the ups and downs of marriage. 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.
