In New England, the name Bridget has become synonymous with the finest quality imports from Ireland, whether in reference to the Irish import shop, Bridget’s – An Irish Tradition, or its dynamic and knowledgeable owner, Bridget Daly. Bridget has been an importer and retailer of exquisite Irish imports for more than forty years and she founded her current retail business in 1987 with her daughter, Lorraine.
A native of the bustling town of Tullamore, County Offaly, Ireland, this mother of four began her business when, as a recreational knitter, she found herself constantly fielding questions about the Aran sweaters she was creating as gifts for family and friends. With a long family history of entrepreneurship and a passion for both fashion and masterful handcrafts, it was
a natural progression for Bridget to begin supplying these beautiful garments to a rapidly growing following of customers by importing directly from knitters in Ireland and selling in a retail setting.
Over the decades her expertise and connections led to the expansion of the product lines and services and, in 2011, Bridget settle into a lovely shop in her new hometown of Norton, Massachusetts. 2012 saw the addition of a family bakery and the addition of Bridget’s Famous Irish Bread. This busy mother and grandmother translates her passion for all things Irish into Bridget’s – An Irish Tradition, a lively center of activity that beautifully weaves together the threads of family, community and the best of Celtic culture!
