The Brady clan originated in Co. Cavan in the province of Ulster in the north of Ireland, and it is there that the name remains most common, as well in some of the adjoining counties. The Gaelic for the name is Ó Brádaigh. Its meaning is unclear, however it is possible that it comes from the Gaelic word “brádach” which means ‘spirited’.
The hand knit Brady sweater has a blackberry centre panel, flanked by cables, braids and chevron on either side. The blackberry stitch symbolises the Holy Trinity, and the cable stitch is a wish for good luck. 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.
