100% cotton these new work pants are a great new addition to the Pretty Bird work wear offering. Royal blue with touches of black, these breathable work pants are designed to fit the female form with an excellent size range up to to size UK 22.
For a long time now, I have been planning a #nowyouseeme spotlight to introduce you all to some of our #prettybirdtribe. First up – you get to meet Sarah Callow, one of Ireland’s only female farriers who is based in Wicklow, Ireland!
March may be one of the busiest months of the year on farms but we have noticed that for some reason it is also one of the most fun and a bit of madness one’s on Twitter. I’m convinced it’s the long hours and late nights that drive us to particularly this platform for a quick chat, check in with the rest of the world and bit of farming solidarity banter.
We had a serious laugh in the last few weeks with two farmers from the UK – Jim Beary and his wife Julia. It all started on 11th March when I came across this tweet:
Nervous but excited about out first trade stand Bloom which is just 4 days away. We’ve spent the last few days finalising our stand layout and getting everything in place. Bloom is open to the public on Thursday 31st until June 4th and our plans are well in place…
There is nothing we love more than good craic especially when it’s for a good cause. Many of you will know that Pretty Bird has struck up a great friendship with the Hynes Family in Aherla, Co. Cork. Peter and Paula and their daughters Chloe, Becky and Georgie have been great supporters of ours from the get go and have become our biggest brand advocates.
So when a joke started on Twitter that we needed to get Peter Hynes into a pair of pink overalls like the rest of the family, it wasn’t long until the idea sparked something and #pinkvalentines was born.

A couple of weeks back, I had a lovely telephone chat with Frank Kenneddy Editor of the Connacht Tribune about our business. Always happy to spotlight, new and innovative businesses and news from around the region, we were deligthed to speak to Frank and tell him out story.
Given that our ranges are designed for working in and me myself is more at home in the milking parlour than backstage dressing models at a fashion show, you might imagine how much like a fish out of water I was immersed in the world of catwalk fashion at the National Ploughing Championships but I have to say it was fun!

It was so great to meet Irish Times journalist Sean Dunne at the National Ploughing Championships. Sean did what a lot of journalists do now and put a call out on Twitter for Ploughing stories ahead of attending the event. Lorna Sixsmith, who has become a great friend to our business tipped me off about Sean’s tweet so I popped him an email telling him a little about the launch of our new business. Read More
