Despite a pandemic, the Foxford Woollen Mills which includes a shop, cafe and online business, together with a manufacturing facility and museum continues to expand.
Work is underway at present, developing an outdoor area to the front of the shop and cafe in an effort to open up the facility’s facade to Foxford town itself.
Joe Queenan is the CEO of the Foxford Woollen Mills that has a worldwide reputation for the quality of its home accessories, furnishings and clothing and he says that while the international tourism business on site has collapsed over the past 18 months, the online demand for products is up. In addition he says the Irish staycationers on site have increased significantly.
Midwest News Editor Teresa O’Malley was in Foxford and spoke to Joe outside the Mill to talk about the latest development - a new outdoor area to the front of the building under construction at present.
