In the 1940's Hickeys a general merchants store in North Earl was obtained by Edmund Donnelly Street. Recognising a gap in the market Edmund developed the business into a fabric and haberdashery store specialising in dress and bridal fabrics from all over the world. His son Eamon Donnelly explanded the business further opening more stores throughout the country and developing a successful wholesale business
Today, Hickeys remains a family owned Irish business, now managed by Ian Donnelly, Edmund's Grandson. Retail growth continues with the introduction of Home Focus at Hickeys a chain of retail park stores concentrating on soft furnishings for the home.
