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..




That responsibility has now passed into the third generation of Durkins via Joe’s daughter Claire who continues to innovate and strive to exceed customer expectations in this ever evolving world we live in.


We are very privileged to have connected with so many generations of great Longford people and are really looking forward to suiting and booting the future generations.    



Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
