Kavanagh Clan Sweater



Cavanagh, Cavanaugh, Kavanaugh, Ó Caomhánaigh.
Ó Caomhánaigh comes from the Gaelic word “Caomhánach”, which means ‘a follower of (St.) Caomhán’. The Kavanaghs are directly descended from Art Mac Murrough, who was King of Leinster in the 12th century. At that time the family owned vast tracts of land in the regions of Co. Carlow and Co. Wexford, which was then known as Kavanagh Country. Kavanagh is currently the 53rd most numerous surname in Ireland.

The hand knit Kavanagh sweater has a honeycomb centre panel, flanked by cable, plait, and chevron stitches on either side. The honeycomb stitch represents work, and the cable stitch is a wish for good luck. 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.
