O'Donovan Clan Sweater


The Donovans are descended from the sept of Ó Donnabháin who were from County Limerick in the south west of Ireland. The name comes from the Gaelic Ó Donndubháin meaning ‘descendant of the dark brown-haired one’ (or possible the brown-complexioned one). The Clan gave their name to the modern barony of Carbery in West Cork, after they were forced to migrate south from Co. Limerick due to the feuding between the O’Briens and the Mac Carthys for control of Munster. The name is the 67th most popular name in Ireland, and the 5th most numerous name in Co. Cork.

The hand knit Donovan sweater has a moss-filled diamond centre panel, flanked by rope and moss stitches on either side. 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.

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.
