Hickey Clan Sweater



Hickie, Hicky, O’ Hickee, O’ Hickey, Ó hÍceadha.
The name Hickey is the Anglicisation of the Gaelic Ó hIcidhe, from the word “iceadh” meaning ‘healer’. This name was the result of the clan’s position as hereditary physicians to the royal O’ Brien family. The sept was part of the Dál gCais tribal grouping, and was based in the counties of Clare and Tipperary. The name is common throughout Ireland today, but remains strongest in counties Clare and Tipperary, and neighbouring Co. Limerick.

The hand knit Hickey sweater has a central panel of interlocking cable with link and cable stitches on either side. The cable stitch represents good luck and the link stitches represent the unbroken chain, which exists 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.
