The name Daly comes from the Gaelic word “Dálach”, which means ‘one who is present at assemblies’. This word gives its root to the word “Dáil”, the official name for the Irish parliament. Traditionally the Ó Dálaigh clan were poets and scholars. The name is the 24th most numerous surname in Ireland, and remains most popular in its original homeland of Co. Westmeath (explore the history of the Daly name further).
The hand knit Daly sweater has an unusual cable plait centre stitch, flanked by braid, moss, and diamond & cable braids on either side. The cable stitch represents good luck, moss symbolises nature and the diamonds represent 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.
