O’Neills Lifestyle, Retail

O’Neills was founded in 1918 as a manufacturer of Gaelic footballs and it is now the largest sportswear manufacturing company in Ireland. They are a 100% Irish owned company, proud of our Irish heritage, employing over 700 people in Ireland. They have extensive manufacturing plants in Strabane, Co. Tyrone and Walkinstown Avenue, Dublin. A vertically integrated manufacturing company, O’Neills converts yarn into fabric in modern knitting and dyeing plants, which is transferred to the print and sewing units where it is made into garments. Their ability to manufacture from their own fabrics allows them to specially design garments to meet the short delivery dates dictated by the market. In the last forty years, the company has expanded considerably and is now a major supplier across a wide range of sports. Their aim is to produce high-quality garments suitable for all sporting and leisure activities. They customise garments in their embroidery and print departments to satisfy demand for crests, logos, sponsorship etc. In addition, they also offer a large range of core stock colours, which can be ordered and customised with club and sponsors’ crests etc. Champions currently wear their garments across a wide range of sports including Gaelic games, soccer, rugby, boxing, basketball, athletics, Special Olympics athletes, hockey, netball, etc.
