About us

family heritage of knitting


Established in 2018 by two sisters, Anne and Teresa Behan, Aine is a young business that prides itself on promoting the work of some of Ireland’s most exciting designer-makers.

Trading both online and from a brick-and-mortar shop in the picturesque Killaloe, an emphasis is placed on original design, craftsmanship and heritage. Anne is an award-winning knitwear designer with a studio in Killaloe.

Her designs sell worldwide under the labels Aine and McConnell. Teresa has spent the last 20 years in retail both in Ireland and Australia. The shop is a beautiful space nestled on the shores of the lake.

It showcases their passion for the handmade, and an appreciation for Irish heritage crafts through established and emerging makers.

While it is an eclectic mix of inspirations & ideas that feed the designs each year, every collection stays true to the authenticity of the craft and the heritage of Irish knitwear.
