A Company Steeped in the History of Irish Linen
The founder of the company, Mr Charles Gallen from Omagh in County Tyrone, bought what was then known as the Drogheda Linen Company in Balbriggan, County Dublin in 1870.
Like most of the town and harbour, the Mill had been established by the local landlord, Baron Hamilton of Hampton Hall, in the early 1790’s, to collectivise a strong local textile industry.
Still in the hands of the Gallen family, more recently the company has merged as an independent partner in the Samuel Lamont Group.
This association with a firm with an equally long linen tradition, means that Charles Gallen’s unique designs and products now are made in Irelands largest and most productive household textile making up facility.
The consolidation of ranges from this association includes Irish linen bed sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers which proudly hold the Royal Warrant of HM Queen Elizabeth.
