Historically, there were several septs of Ó Cearbhaill located in counties Offaly and Louth. The name comes from the Gaelic “Cearbhall”, meaning ‘fierce in battle’. Today, Carroll is the 22nd most numerous surname in Ireland, and is strongest in counties Offaly, where it is the 2nd most common name, and Kilkenny (find out more about the Carroll name history).
The hand knit Carroll sweater has a blackberry central panel, flanked by cables and moss-filled diamonds on either side. The blackberry stitch is symbolic of the Holy Trinity, the cables represent good luck and the diamonds symbolise wealth. This beautiful Aran sweater has been hand knitted in the traditional báinín (pronounced ‘baw neen’) colour, the natural white of the wool. It comes to you complete with a clan history and crest. It is made of 100% pure new wool, is water repellent and breathable. It has been hand crafted in the traditional Irish style, and, with care, will last a lifetime.
