While traveling toward Galway we noticed a small sign that said shoe factory outlet. Why not? Signs led us to a major Irish company's factory on Rte 446 about 1 KM east of Creagh Rd on the County Galway border. (On the east side of Ballinasloe) We found some quality bargains....last season's styles, minor defects, odd sizes, etc; but at fantastic prices and a most courteous store manager. Worth a look for true Irish products and the chance there is a style you like and a size that fits.
