Meany's Shoes is a family run business in the town of Carrick-on-Suir, on the border of the three counties of Tipperary, Waterford and Kilkenny. Steeped in tradition, local historians have been able to date the Meany family business right back to shoemakers in the 18th Century. With this strong tradition of personal service and good fitting shoes, it is no wonder that this business has such a strong reputation. Customers come from far and wide to avail of the huge selection for all the family.
