Sweater Shop is a family run business which was established in 1986 by Dom Byrne who still runs the company to this day. The Sweater Shop is truly a family affair with Dom, his daughter Laura, daughter in law Kate, Sister Breege and niece Alva involved in the business!  When asked by a journalist from The Irish Times about what made his shop so special in 1986 Dom commented 'quality, value and selection' and this remains true to this day.
