Our Heritage

90 years ago

Patrick Bourke Menswear was founded by Patrick Bourke in 1928 on the corner of ‘The Square’ in Kilrush. He sold menswear, ladies wear and children’s clothes. The shop became a heartbeat in the centre of the town. He built long standing relationships with his customers on the values of excellent service, high quality products and honesty. His son Michael joined the business in 1950 and continued to develop it. The business at this stage was an old Drapery shop.

In 1974, Michaels son, Patrick- the third generation- joined the family business and expanded the Kilrush shop to two floors and then opened a second shop in Ennis in 1994. He concentrated on selling men’s formal and casual clothing for all ages. Patrick in 2007, opened their flagship store in Ennis which consisted of 4 floors of quality menswear from international and local brands to suit all tastes and all ages.

We particularly pride ourselves in working with staff that have on average twelve years experience, expertise and knowledge. We are here to serve you and we look forward to seeing you in store in the near future.
