Who Are we?
We are Fisherman Out of Ireland, a small knitting company based in Kilcar, County Donegal.
As Irish brands go, Fisherman Out of Ireland is right up there with Barry’s Tea and Kerrygold. Our knitwear label was founded in 1991 by the Blarney Woollen Mills company which is an Irish owned family busines. Fisherman is managed by Dubliner Des Daly, also referred to as our ‘Captain’, he has lived all his working life in Donegal working in the knitwear industry.
We are a crew of 26 loyal, local people. The average length of employment a staff member has worked with us is 20+ years so you can’t pull the wool over our eyes!
We might be situated on the edge of Europe in the middle of ‘nowhere’ but we export 70% of everything we make to the four corners of the globe.
