Patrick Bourke Menswear Celebrates 90 Years Of Business

One of Clare’s best known menswear stores is celebrating 90 years in business.

Patrick Bourke Menswear was founded in 1928 on the corner of The Square in Kilrush and since then, has expanded to Ennis, where its flagship store is located.

Patrick’s son Michael joined the business in 1950 while his son Patrick, who’s the third generation Bourke to run it, joined in 1974 and remains at the helm.


Major refurbishments are ongoing at the original Kilrush store to mark the landmark anniversary and Patrick says while business in West Clare can be tough, he wouldn’t have it any other way.
