About us - SomethingIrish
SomethingIrish was founded in 1999,
in Hoboken, New Jersey by Stephen Flood. The company has grown considerably
in size since those early days. Stephen's sister Georgina now runs SomethingIrish.com and we now stock well over three hundred separate
items. We have moved our customer service operations and
our Shipping fulfillment to both Waterford and Dublin, Ireland. Both Stephen and Georgina were born and educated in
Dublin, they both emigrated to America at the age of 23. After seven years Stephen and his wife Paula decided
it was time to move back to Ireland. On their way to Ireland, they traveled around the
world and have since settled back in Stephens native Dublin. Georgina now lives in Co. Waterford.
The Floods now travel to the
far corners of Ireland on a regular basis, identifying new and exciting craftsmen.
We are always adding new items to our catalogue. So check back as often as possible.
makes us different.
We sell only Irish made goods. Absolutely
everything we sell is made in Ireland. We value this policy because it sets
us apart from the competition. Many other sites pretend to sell all Irish goods,
when in fact the majority of the items they sell are made outside of Europe, where ethics can be replaced by the bottom line, being profit. Be suspect of fake Irish goods, they do not benefit
Irish people, they do not benefit the poor unfortunates who were forced to make
the goods, and they do not benefit you the customer. We believe in fair trade,
with a passion.
We have a passion for Ireland, her
heritage, her crafts and her people. We will promote our culture at every opportunity,
we will seek to bring only the best Irish made items to our customers attention,
we will strive to give the customer value for money.
