Our story began in 1791, with a factory founded on the site of humble beginnings of textile manufacture in Kells. The trade, then a small dyeworks, was established by local abbotts of the Augustinian Order in the 12th century; the same Order that led the way in cloth finishing across Medieval Europe. Their legacy is woven into our proud heritage; a fine tradition of quality craftsmanship that remains to this day. The ruins of that historic Abbey are preserved on our site, reminding us of how this business was born. We have enjoyed providing over 220 years of building on such rich history, specialising in a variety of waxed cotton finishes. Traditional knowledge and methods are still used, and we constantly explore new innovations to continue producing quality that has made Templemoyle Mills a market leader in the business of textile manufacturing. Whatever the requirement, we produce cutting edge products suited to the needs of modern society; yet steeped in tradition and warm heritage.

Barry Corrigan's acquisition of the company

POSTED ON 30 Jan 2014

After the purchase of the company from the Dinsmore Family by current managing director in 2007, the following seven years have witnessed a substantial impetus to further diversify the business. With an investment of £1.1m in a new production facility, partly funded from the European Regional Development Fund, Templemoyle Mills has been equipped to grow and display prestige in the textile industry. We have added a variety of finishes to our existing dyeing and finishing business, such as flame retardant, water repellent, anti-bacterial and now wax coatings. These innovations in recent years have been recognised with accolades such as Exporter of the Year presented by the regional business awards in 2012 and 2013, with the Business Growth Award also achieved in 2013.

We are delighted to announce that we have just been presented as winners for both awards this year 2014!
