Joseph Cheaney & Sons
Joseph Cheaney founded the company and moved to the present site in 1896. In 1903 Joseph's sons Arthur and Harold joined the company. In 1930 "Dick" Cheaney, grandson of the founder, joined the company.
In 1966 Cheaney won the Queen's Award to industry and was sold to Church and Company. In 2009 Jonathan and William Church bought the company.
Their family has been making fine shoes for five generations and they are fully committed to producing the finest footwear entirely made in England.
Over 70 years ago a co-operative was formed to provide work in a small town called Ballinasloe, in the heart of Galway on Ireland's glorious West Coast. Taking its name from a famous French courtesan, Madame du Barry, the company's formative years were deﬁned through the making of ﬁne quality shoes during which time they were fortunate to be able to draw on a local population of hard-working craftsmen and women.
Dubarry's reputation as one of Ireland's most respected and successful companies was born out of the workforce's deep-rooted pride and ambition to produce footwear of the very highest quality.
We also stock footwear from Sebago, John White and Fullerton.
