Inside Heritage Knitwear Factory Bonner of Ireland

The drive west towards Ardara in County Donegal is a breathtaking one, even in the grey mist and persistent drizzle. The scenic Glengesh Pass cuts through the high mountains affording hazy views of narrow lakes and flocks of sheep dot the landscape before the road descends to the small town on the Atlantic coast. 

The knitwear factory, Bonner of Ireland, is easy to miss with its unassuming facade, which feels more like a family home than a bustling enterprise. Established in 1976 by husband and wife team Cornelius and Bernadette Bonner, it was in fact originally the hay shed of friends of theirs. Purchased over 40 years ago, the building, which included an adjoining piggery, is now home to their established family knitwear business. Cornelius sadly passed away in 2008 and his son Eamonn now runs the company, honouring his father’s vision and tenacity for blending traditional techniques with modern technology. While retired, Bernadette continues to keep a close eye on operations, nipping back and forth between the factory and her home, which is conveniently located right next door.
