Irish Heritage Urns

Irish Heritage Urns is a family-run business based in Tipperary, Ireland. Master carpenters for over 20 years, Jim and Tom Kinnane create beautiful urns crafted from natural Irish wood, such as oak, sycamore, beech, and ash, with some containing bog oak inserts, Irish tweed and knitted Aran inlays.

Irish Heritage Urns, Tipperary, Ireland

Jim and Tom were both born in London to Irish parents who left Ireland in the 1960’s. Their maternal grandmother was born in New York to Irish parents who had left an Ireland that offered little or no opportunities. The brothers have spent many years connecting with family and friends abroad who still hold the precious links with Ireland.

The family business was inspired by the memories of the Irish diaspora, the generations who emigrated and remained abroad. Both Jim and Tom’s wives, Lianne and Úna also work in the business.
