Who we are:
The Shop was established in 1881 by James John Fox, and since then it has passed through 4 generations of his descendants. His Son Walter Fox inherited the business in 1916. This was a turbulent time in Ireland, with the rising in 1916 and the civil war of the 1920's - the effects of which have been captured in the hand written ledgers of the shop. By 1930 the business had passed to Walters son Frederic and despite the world economic depression it was he who oversaw expansion into Distribution in Ireland and the UK and expanded the retail operations into the Duty Free market and into London. Freddie died in 1990 by which stage his son Ron and son in law Oliver Hill were running the business, and both are still involved in directing the business today. Ron's sons Stuart and Rob now run the businesses in the UK and Ireland respectively with our Grafton Street store being run by David McGrane.
