Doherty Clan Sweater


Docherty, Dorrity, Dougharty, Dougherty, O’ Docherty, O’ Dogherty, Ó Dochartaigh.

The Doghertys originated in Co. Donegal, and their name is one of the oldest hereditary surnames in Ireland today. They are descended from Niall of the Nine Hostages, King of Ireland in the fourth century. Their stronghold is Co. Donegal in the northern province of Ulster, where they were powerful chiefs until the execution of Cahir O’ Doherty in the seventeenth century. The name comes from the word “dochartach” which means ‘unlucky’ or ‘hurtful’. Doherty is the fifteenth most numerous in Ireland, and first and second most numerous respectively in counties Derry and Donegal (find out more about the heritage & history of the Doherty name).

The hand knit Doherty sweater has a chevron centre stitch, flanked by cable, rope and moss on either side. The cable stitch represents good luck, and moss stitch represents nature. 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.
