Claire Power is bringing style, comfort and durability to farming wardrobes throughout Ireland and the UK with her new business based in Tinryland, Carlow.

The Australian moved to Ireland a decade ago after meeting her husband Damien on home turf.

"Damien was working on my family bull stud farm when we met. I followed him back to Carlow five years later and we've been living and working on his family farm since," she says.
