From the Donegal town of Ardara, Eddie Doherty started weaving in 1956. Back then there were over 200 weavers in Ardara. Now the last weaver in the town, and one of only a handful in the country. Eddie Doherty has kept his craft alive by welcoming visitors into his workshop, to demonstrate this traditional skill and tell story behind tweed making in the north-west.

With his hand made tweed, Eddie makes beautiful throws, caps, shawls, waistcoats. Perfect to keep you warm in the cooler months!
