O'Rourke Clan Sweater

$199.00
Ó Ruairc comes from the personal name Ruarc, which is derived from the Norse “Hrothekr” meaning ‘famous king’. The person from whom the O’ Rourkes claim descent was the King of Breifne in the ninth century, and there followed three O’ Rourke Kings of Connacht during the tenth and eleventh centuries. Today, the name is among the 100 most popular surnames in Ireland (discover more about the history of the O'Rourke Irish name).


The hand knit O’ Rourke sweater incorporates honeycomb, moss and inverted claw stitches. The honeycomb symbolises work – the industriousness of the bees while the 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.

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.
