The O’Dalaigh Story

History Time Line

John & Anne first started designing and making jewellery

Launched our etched brass inlaid with silver collection. The inspiration came from The Book of Kells-9th Century manuscript

New additions to our O`Dalaigh family with Johanna & Jonathan

Launched our very popular silver collection based on ancient artefacts found throughout Europe. This collection was wholesaled all around the world

Jonathan  started learning by his father’s side on school holidays at age 13

Opened O`Dalaigh Jewellers shop and workshop in Clifden, Connemara

Jonathan came from Kilkenny design yard to manage our flagship store.

Launched website:

Opened a retail unit at the new Cliffs of Moher visitor experience

Relocated our Clifden shop to the Square which also gave us the opportunity to design the work shop in a way that customers could see the jewellery being made from the retail area.

Official opening of the relocated shop on Main St, Clifden

It was a great honour for our family to meet Bill & Kathy Magee, the founders of our chosen charity Operation Smile. Jonathan designed a gold smile necklace for the charity auction at the anniversary ball.

Jimmy came on board and started learning the trade.

Launched our stunning gold Claddagh ring collection set with Diamonds, Emeralds, Rubies & Sapphires. Read More

Dave Grohl spotted wearing our jewellery. A Dragon Head Cross from our Viking collection. 

Transformed our Cliffs of Moher shop with a refit. Jonathan put his heart and soul into planning every inch of this small shop and worked with a local carpenter to make the custom cases. We look forward to you hopefully getting to see it one day. 

The story continues and all our family want to thank you, our customers for helping us get to where we are today. John, Jonathan, Jimmy, Aileen, Johanna & Annie Daly.
