Irish made fine Celtic jewelry

This was the ‘first’ of many; first company to use family coat of arms on a piece of jewelry, the original designer of the infamous ‘Mo Anam Cara’ ring and also the first manufacturer to use the Claddagh symbol on a wedding band.

Irish wisdom for every occasion
Ann Peterson, owner of Mundo Images and theirishcardshop.com was destined to create Irish greeting cards and gifts.
When she was a child, her family lived in Ireland, and at the age of seven, she began capturing bits of the colorful country with her first camera. Later, she also developed a love of languages and started a collection of quotations that were meaningful to her.
Winning several awards at juried art shows, Ann launched Mundo Images in 2007 at the National Stationery show with eight lines of greeting cards. The Irish Wisdom line was the star.
Her cards are now carried by fine, independent shops throughout the United States and Canada. Mundo Images has been an exhibitor at The Celtic Marketplace and The Ireland Show since 2008.

Lee Valley Ireland
It began with the grandfather shirt
Lee Valley Ireland has designed and made high-quality clothing here in the quaint village of Inchigeela, in West Cork, since 1986.
Local man Denis Hurley saw a market for a traditional Irish grandfather shirt and began drafting patterns and cutting fabric at home, before calling on the sewing skills of local women who operated from their own homes. From this cottage industry, the new family business went from strength to strength.
Following the success of the grandfather shirt now worn in all corners of the world, a range of traditional nightwear was developed and over the years Lee Valley Ireland has expanded its product range to include outerwear, shirting, and knitwear. In 2003 Lee Valley Ireland moved from the creamery building in the family home to purpose-built premises nearby and opened a retail space to showcase the growing range of products.
Over 30 years on from cutting his first grandfather shirt, Denis and his family remain committed to designing and making high-quality Irish country clothing and strive to offer you garments that you will treasure forever.
