BobbiKate Children’s Clothing
My name is Catherine Bergin and I have been sewing from a very early age, I love to create my own unique designs. I created my own clothes from the age of 14 including jackets and suits for my brothers and dresses for my sisters.
Special occasions have always ignited my creativity and I love making unique outfits for family and friends. I adore colour, and my designs blend wonderful cut with pattern and colour matching to make them stand out in the crowd.
I now specialise in Children’s clothes using classic design with stunning fabrics made in the heart of Ireland.
I offer a personalised service in a range of designs in an array of fabrics tailored to each individual’s requirements. Each outfit is made to your own measurements.

Aidan Smyth – Graphic Hurleys
Aidan has developed a new and innovative business in Cahir, Co. Tipperary of Graphic Hurleys. This iswhere he does decorative woodburning designs in various sized hurleys.
Aidan studied Interior Architecture at Cork Institute of Technology and after working in America decided to come home. He had heard the expression ‘the best way to find a job is create one’ and decided to create his own business where he could combine his love of making and art into an innovative product. He uses Celtic, sporting and historical images burnt onto the hurleys to make a permanent and beautiful design.
He buys his hurleys from Johnny O’Brien in Cahir, the latest in a line of local hurley makers. They are still made of the traditional ash.
His products are carried in the Craft Granary. If you don’t see something you like Aidan is able to custom make to any specific requirements you have.
