About Us

Fordes Ltd is a family owned and family run business that has been serving the people of the West of Ireland for over 80 years.

Thomas and Dora Forde opened their general drapery business in 1929. Both were involved until their passing in 1979 and 1965 respectively and the family name has been carried on by their son John, who joined the business in 1952. John's wife joined in 1979 shortly after which a modernization project was undertaken.

Further expansion came in 1998 with the addition of a new off-licence, but John is proud to say the business of general drapery continues to this day. The next generation is already in place, with his son Tom having come on board in recent years.
