The name O’ Reilly, and its variations, is extremely common throughout Ireland. The clan is descended from the Ó Raghailligh of Breffny, which comprises the modern areas of counties Cavan and Longford, and their influence also extended to counties Westmeath and Meath. Today the surname is the eleventh most numerous in the country, and is number one in counties Cavan, Longford and Meath (find out more about the history of the O'Reilly name).
The hand knit O’ Reilly sweater has a basket centre panel, flanked by cable, honeycomb and moss stitches on either side. The basket stitch represents a wish for a full catch for the fisherman, cable symbolises good luck, honeycomb is representative of work and moss stands for 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.
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.
