The Durkins Story
Our story began in 1933 when Con Durkin decided to pursue his dream of providing affordable footwear to the people of Longford and the surrounding counties. There he traded successfully and continued to expand the business until his retirement in the later 1960’s.
Following on from Con’s success, his son Joe, took over the reins of the family business. Joe expanded the business lines, from footwear, menswear, sportswear and school wear and grew Durkin’s into a very successful and well know family business in Co. Longford.
