An East Clare knitwear company has announced a €400,000 investment in its operations here.

McConnell Woollen Mills Ltd will invest the money in its newly opened Killaloe facility over the coming three years, which will see 10 new jobs created.

From this base, local craftmakers produce traditional Irish wool products, which are shipped across the country and further afield.


The company was established by Anne Behan almost 20 years ago and has won numerous awards to date.
