The Story of Our Irish Roots


Wild Irish Rose began as a small vintage shop in downtown Raleigh. The shop offered a few Irish and Celtic items and various vintage pieces. In a short period of time, interest grew and demand began to rise for authentic Irish goods. Wild Irish Rose expanded its reach to the North Carolina community and began to sell at local events--each one being a welcomed opportunity for the shop to meet people from diverse backgrounds, all with shared joy and appreciation for the Irish culture and products that hail from Ireland.  

After nearly a decade as Founder and Owner of Wild Irish Rose, Joan O'Keefe recently passed ownership to Deirdre O'Malley.  Deirdre's family is from the seaside village of Louisburg, County Mayo, Ireland. She is grateful for Joan's work in establishing an Irish presence in Raleigh and looks forward to continuing Joan's dedication to sharing the Irish culture with North Carolina, and beyond.
