Craftmanship in every boot, shoe & garment
In 1937 a co-operative company was established to provide employment in a small town called Ballinasloe, in the heart of Galway on Ireland's glorious West Coast. The company was named Dubarry, after a famous French courtesan. Dubarry of Ireland's beginnings were in the design and manufacturing of fine leather shoes. The business was fortunate to be able to draw on a local population of hard working craftsmen and women, and Dubarry soon developed a reputation for excellent workmanship and quality.
