Slieve Bloom Design's Story
The gently rolling hills of the Slieve Bloom Mountains are a familiar sight across much of the midlands, yet they are often overlooked as a destination in favour of higher peaks or the coastline. Having lived in or near the Slieve Blooms for nearly 25 years, Alison has never tired of exploring the area with its constantly changing scenes and has developed a range of products for the giftware and souvenir market to try to showcase its beauty.
"I believe the existence of souvenirs shows the worth of a place. And it is my wish that nature lovers from near or far would be inspired to explore the area further; to enjoy the benefits of fresh air and exercise, feel the stillness, and be amazed by new discoveries.
I would be delighted if anyone who purchases an item of Slieve Bloom Design giftware would feel they are taking a bit of the mountain experience with them."
