So this week I’m interrupting our Journeys Around Ireland series because at The Irish Store we have just launched our Spring/Summer collection that I’m just dying to share with you all-especially our new Aran knitwear lines. Ok, so I know many of you will be thinking-an Aran sweater for Spring Summer?! Well yes! Of course, your favourite Aran sweater is wonderful for keeping you warm and toasty in the Winter months but there’s nothing like a stylish Aran coat or cardigan to keep those summer evening chills at bay. Here are a few of the gems in our new collection.
