2 Wild Geese

This local designer, artist and crafts outlet started in November 2018, when locally based retail and hospitality professionals, Luke Anthony and Maggie Murphy decided to open a store which offered designers and artists a way to sell their works through either traditional retail or on a shelf-to-rent basis.

The original shop was downstairs in Corbett Court section of the Eyre Square Shopping Centre, in a unit that had been long-vacant.   In August 2020, they moved to a smaller stop on the corner of Cross Streets in Kirwan Lane, previously the home of Yes flowers and next door to Judy Greene's, which offered the advantages of natural light to showcase the art-works, and a far higher number of people passing by.  And it had exterior walls which were used as a canvas by various local artists and the Cartoon Festival.

Offering products from 80 or more local artists, craftspeople and designers (who they called stockists), the store was a veritable emporium of Irish design, giftware and homeware, with products including artworks, ceramics, jewellery, sculpture, candles, wooden and leather products, bags, books and more.

With little fanfare, and no public announcements, the Cross Street shop closed late September 2023.
