Hennessy Sports was established by Eamonn Hennessy in Irishtown, Kilkenny in 1977. In 1982 it relocated to 14 Parliament St, Kilkenny. In 1985 Eamonn’s sister Eileen and her husband Frank Morrissey took over the business. During that time Hennessy Sports has grown its product and knowledge base to become one of the leading Sports Stores in the South East of Ireland. We are proud to say that we are Kilkenny’s only locally owned Sports Shop.
Due to increased competition and recessionary times we decided to become more specialised and to offer a personalised service. To coincide with this decision in 2011 we relocated to Newpark Shopping Centre, where there is free parking and easy access to our store. It is now staffed by Frank Morrissey, Sinéad Butler and James Cooper who are there to help with any enquiries.
We cater for Mens, Ladies and children’s clothing and footwear. We carry a wide range of sports equipment and accessories. We are specialists in personalised in school tracksuits for primary and secondary level. We are renowned for our range of Kilkenny GAA clothing and accessory range. We are also the leading supplier of trophies, cups, medals and awards to schools, clubs and associations.
