St Patrick’s Day – Celebrating all things Irish

Posted by Nicola Woodstock on 15th Mar 2016

Tomorrow is St Patrick’s Day - a day that is celebrated across the globe with much merriment - from Canada to Japan to Switzerland!
The celebrations usually run over the whole weekend and parades take place to ensure fun is had by all - the world over.

Country & Stable stock brands from all over the world, but on this special day we would like to celebrate our Irish friends Bucas, Jack Murphy and Horseware Ireland and tell you a little bit more about who they are and why you should love them as much as we do.

A Little Bit About…

Jack Murphy

“Irresistible Irish clothing for style conscious individuals.”

This is how the Dublin based brand describe themselves; a statement as bold and to-the-point as their clothing.

Jack Murphy has distinct pride and passion which visibly flows through their designs, designed by a team who are dedicated to re-inventing classic, timeless country style mixed with the contemporary, always bringing you uncompromising style.

Within their collection you can expect to find luxurious tweeds, knits and on-trend tops that are not afraid to show you their true colours, with bold colour blocks and prints that will see you through season after season.

Horseware Ireland

Starting small in Dundalk, Ireland in 1985, couple Tom and Carol MacGuinness, had their sights set on producing the best rug that wouldn’t leak. After hand-stitching prototype after prototype we now have the Rambo Original, which now stands with iconic status in the equine rug industry.

Since 1985, Horseware have gone from strength to strength and are now a very well established global company boasting other great brands under their belt: Rhino, Amigo and Ice Vibe.

But, not only do they cater for your four-legged needs, you can expect to find fashionable riding and casual wear for you and your whole family, and all budgets.

And there’s more!  Horseware Ireland are also actively protecting the environment by getting 100% of their energy requirement to run their factor from renewable Irish wind power. Last year saving the equivalent of 5,833 trees!


Bucas are another great producer of technical, ‘intelligent’ horse rugs - from concept through to creation.

Founded in Cork, Ireland in 1981, the innovative brand produces a wide range of high performance rugs with varying properties for all equestrian needs.

One of their best-selling ranges is the Buzz Off collection, which is produced using specially developed fabric, and the more recent addition of the Select range that offers a unique system to combine the rugs or use alone.

Bucas pride themselves on being at the forefront of pioneering horse rugs and continue to grow their brand status and develop their forever-growing product range.

To see for yourself what great things these Irish beauties have to offer, take a look at our brand pages and be enamoured by all things good and have yourself the best St Patrick’s Day!

Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Duit!

(Happy St Patrick's Day)
