Reunion

Reeling in the Clarks years
Democrat Reporter editor@dundalkdemocrat.ie@DundalkDemocrat

A special reunion of former Clark’s workers was held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Dundalk on Saturday last5.

It was a special evening for the many people who worked at Clark’s and Hallidays to recall great memories of the days when Dundalk was “The shoe capital of Ireland”.

Hallidays came to Dundalk in 1922.

In 1971 Clark’s took full control of the company and everything moved to the Ramparts where 1,000 people were employed.

The reunion was organised by Lucy Holmes, Madeleine Carroll, and Mary Murphy.
