My name is Noel Kirkpatrick and I'm the owner of Mourne Way Apparel. We're a running and outdoor wear brand based at the foot of the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland. I launched Mourne Way Apparel in mid 2019 and my mission is to create a unique clothing brand that encourages you to challenge yourself physically, push through the pain and discomfort to places you thought were beyond you. I'm passionate about running, the outdoors and about building strength of character. I create clothing to help you on your journey to being the person you want to be.
My background is that I've spent over 16 years in an office job where I've spent 8 - 12 hours a day sitting at a desk. I know first hand the impact this can have on the body, the mind and your health. I crave to create a brand and a lifestyle that sets a good example to my daughters and shows them you can chase your dreams if you're prepared to work hard enough.
As a brand that specialises in running and outdoor wear you can expect us to always prioritise our clothing being both functional and having a premium level of comfort over being fashion based. What sets us apart is a personal level of service that you won't get from other brands. I want Mourne Way Apparel to be known as a brand that provides great value, goes above and beyond for our customers and leads by example.
The amazing surroundings of the Mourne Mountains are a great source of inspiration for me. They also make me very aware of our environmental responsibilities. Each month, through Shopify and Offset, I invest in sustainability initiatives to counteract the environmental impact of shipping and delivery of orders.
