The history of

William Connolly, born in 1872, was a keen shot all his life and often left his hometown, early in the morning with his gun and dogs to spend the day shooting wild game.

The Connolly family quickly got the name in shooting circles as being highly involved and promoters of this sport.

Since then, there has been an interest in shooting with the Connolly family. Bill Connolly has kept up that tradition and today has developed it into a modern gun store with a full range of shotguns, rifles, ammunition, accessories and clothing.

The latest expansion of the gun shop was carried out in 2006, giving us the impressive showroom we have today. Stocking all the top names, there isn’t a gun we cannot get. Special orders can be made to supply you with the gun or ammunition to suits your needs.
