The name Cronin is from a diminutive cron meaning ‘swarthy’ or ‘yellow’. The origin of this family name lies in Cork, particularly the West of the County, where place names such as Cooscronin and Liscronin are testament to the prominence of the name. The name is also found plentifully in counties Kerry and Limerick.
The hand made Cronin sweater has a centre cable flanked by moss filled diamonds and honeycomb on both sides. The cable stitch represents good luck, the diamonds symbolise a wish for wealth and the honeycomb represents work. This beautiful hand knitted Aran sweater has been hand knitted in the traditional báinin (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.
