Goldmark Jewellers was set up in 1991 by brother and sister Derek Egan and Marie Cronin. The Egan family have been in the jewellery business since their grandfather trained as a watchmaker in McDowells of O’Connell Street Dublin before setting up his own jewellery business in the west of Ireland in the small market town of Ballaghadereen. That shop which was taken over by their parents Aidan Egan and June Egan in the 1970s and now is run by another brother Aodhan so there are three generations of jewellers in the family.
‘Derek trained as a watchmaker and further developed his craft of making and repairing jewellery over the years working at the bench, while Marie runs the shop day to day We are delighted to have built up a strong reputation and have many loyal customers.’
Repairs are done on-site which means Goldmark can offer a quicker turnaround time than many of our competitors.
