Bridie Murray - Traditional Irish Knitter from the West of Ireland

Bridie Murray Loves Knitting and Art

'I gave these beautifully made wrist warmers to a friend as a gift. She contacted me as soon as she received them to express her delight. A wonderful way to show someone you care.' - Annie H. (verified buyer)

Bridie Murray is a friendly, busy and unassuming woman from the West of Ireland who has this amazing talent to create extraordinary pieces of craft. Her knitted pieces such as these beautiful wrist warmers featured are a total delight and make really beautiful, glamorous wholesome Irish gifts. Although Parade Handmade stocks her Aran wrist warmers and other accessories such as luxurious neck pieces and cowl scarves, Bridie is not in the least shy of knitting up an Aran jumper either!

Bridie has always been interested in knitting and crochet. She works from home on a chair by the fire, usually in the evening and from there she listens to the radio or watches TV while she is working. She always looks forward to seeing the finished product.

Usually Bridie works alone but now and then she works in the company of friends.

'Yes, creativity runs in the family'

When asked if creativity runs in her family Bridie said that she thinks most of the family is creative and that they usually figure out creative ways of doing things. Although Bridie gets some ideas from particular websites and even from shop windows where current Irish craft work fashions are reflected, she is really inspired by scenery, music and emotion.

 What draws you to do creative work?

As a child I wanted to be do creative work and I do that along with being an amenity driver which is important to me also.
In Bridie's opinion, the best place to have a picnic in the area would be Mulranny Beach or the grounds of Westport House. The Great Western Greenway, the Reek and surrounding areas would be great places to bring visitors to show off some of the astounding beauty of County Mayo.
