In November alone Hairy Baby shipped to 26 different countries, up six on the same time last year.

"Australia is now the biggest export market after the UK, replacing the USA this November. This year we offered free worldwide shipping on orders over €70 and customers have really responded,” said Daragh Murphy, owner of Hairy Baby.

“The UK is our biggest export market and so far our UK sales have grown as fast as our Irish sales. We have had some tough years recently, trading wise, but 2016 looks like being a record for us.

"We’re going to drive on with our plans and initiatives and see where it takes us.“
