Celtic Roots Apparel is a new Irish American company specializing in high quality, sustainably manufactured baseball caps, that celebrate our Irish heritage and Ireland’s unique contribution to American culture.
Founded by three young Irishmen, who now call America home, this new company uses 100% hemp to create meticulously designed baseball caps, bearing emblem maps of Ireland's individual counties.
Plus today, Celtic Roots Apparel is sponsoring a giveaway for Irish American Mom readers.
But before I share details of how to enter the giveaway, let's first learn some more about this newly founded Irish American business.
Irish American Cultural Pride And Irish County Knowledge:
Ireland and America are two nations with deep and lasting cultural bonds. Americans of Irish descent are proud of their American and Irish heritages. Many have taken a deep interest in learning about the land of their ancestors.
In recent years, more and more Irish Americans are delving into their family history and learning from where in Ireland their family hails.
Many have traced their predecessors to the exact county they left behind before boarding a ship bound for America or Canada.
They are learning how each of Ireland's 32 counties has its own unique story, and tying their family story to the county of their ancestors.
Irish County Inspired Baseball Caps:
The unique baseball hats, created by Celtic Roots Apparel, are a classic blend of American and Irish heritage.
For nearly 200 years, the Irish have helped shape America. That’s what inspired the founders of this new Irish American company to combine the outline of the Irish counties with an American style icon - the baseball cap.
Made from 100% hemp, these contemporary designs help tell your Irish-American story.
These Irish county baseball caps are designed with a cool, timeless style to help you showcase your Irish roots with pride.
This is a new company. To get their business off they ground, these three young men from County Wexford, have launched baseball hats for four counties.
Counties Cork, Dublin, Galway and Mayo are currently available, but they soon plan to extend their range and eventually they'll have a baseball cap available for every county in Ireland.
Where To Buy Celtic Roots Apparel:
These wonderful baseball caps are available online and are a thoughtful gift for those with Irish heritage.
You'll find links for purchasing all four currently available Irish county baseball hats here.
You can also find them on Facebook, on Twitter, and on Instagram.
Two lucky readers will win a Celtic Roots Apparel baseball cap for the county of their choice and valued at $21.99. The counties available are Cork, Dublin, Galway and Mayo.

What wonderful hats! I've been to all four counties mentioned - Dublin, Galway, Mayo, and Cork. I love each of them for different reasons but all hold a special place in my heart. Thanks for letting us know about Celtic Roots Apparel!
Love these! How wonderful, I would love the Cork hat. By the way, I made your mincemeat a couple of weeks ago and made a pie this week, delicious. Thanks for sharing. It will become a Christmas tradition in our home.
Love the hats! Can't wait to go to Ireland!
Love the hats! My grandmother was born and raised in Galway. I've been to airplane once (36 year ago, when I was only 14!) but did not get to see that part of the country. I'd love to go back.
My Dad is from Galway and his mother is from Mayo. He’d be be so happy to wear a gorgeous Galway cap!
To "Ireland!" Aaaah, auto-correct. Makes for some interesting sentences.
I would love to win a County Cork hat, since that's where my family is from. We didn't get to visit there when we were in Ireland, but will definitely see it next time. Thank for the opportunity. Happy Holidays! 😊
They're very nice! Perfect now for windy winter days. Best wishes to the company!
My granny was from lovely Co Leitrim, (my grandpa from Co Derry and my great grandparents from Co Armagh). Co Leitrim is off the beaten path, rural, restful, full of hidden treasures and boasts the tiniest coast line in Ireland. I would love to wear a hat that honors Co Leitrim. Blessings!

My family is from Down and Antrim but I have friends in County Mayo. Nice looking hats!
Beautiful hats. I've been to all 4 counties many times but my dad's mom came from Mayo. I'd be thrilled to wear one from there!
Love these hats! My Grandmother was from Miltown Malbay, County Claire. I was lucky enough to visit her hometown!
I love these! My mom's side of the family hails from Co. Galway. 🙂
Would love to win one of those caps.
Thank You for the opportunity to win one of these caps.
What great hats! County Galway would be perfect for me 🙂
My husband and I really enjoyed our trip to Ireland a few years ago. He would love one Of these special caps!
These caps are lovely. Thank you for this great giveaway.
One of my paternal great-great-grandfathers was James Downes born in 1818 in St. John's R.C. parish in Dublin, so a Dublin cap would suit me nicely. All of my maternal great-great-grandathers were born in Ulster, either Co. Armagh or Co. Donegal.
Would love to win a Dublin cap where my roots run deep. They look fantastic and I’d probably have to fight my husband to wear it!
The hats look great!
I'm so proud of my Irish roots!
What a nice giveaway I’m also an Irish / American mom from Galway. Hi 🙂 happy holidays to you and yours
I traced my family history last spring and I was able to visit Ireland and learn more about where my family came from. My blood hails from Cork, Ireland and I'm so happy! 😀
I definitely felt a sense of peace when my friend and I walked the streets there. It honestly felt like part of my soul had finally come home.
I can't wait to go back! <3
Would wear a County Galway hat quite proudly!
I would love to wear the Dublin hat on my next trip to Dublin!
I love these caps! Many thanks to you and also the young men who made them!
These caps are fantastic. I have roots on County Cork and attended UCC for a year. Looking at this hat would bring back great memories.
What a great idea! I would love to wear the Cork cap. Good luck with your caps. There are so many Irish all over the world, I'm sure you will sell a lot. Time to add more counties to the selection.
These hats are very cool!! Good luck everyone!!🍀🍀
Great hats I’d be proud to wear!
My ancestors hail from Ennis, County Clare.
Great hat designs... I'll wait for the Limerick map.
Thanks for sharing this and your recipes. They've been brilliant hits - everyone so far!!
I'm hoping to win one for my husband. He took a DNA test & found out he was Irish. After a lot of research we've traced his roots back to Cork.
My family comes from West County Cork, a place I had the pleasure of visiting for the first time with my dad many years ago. Entering a tunnel in County Kerry and exiting it into the wild beauty of this county is a memory and feeling of coming home we’ll never forget.
I'll hop in for the second round--County Galway
Fine looking caps!
My paternal grandmother sailed from Cork to America at the age of 4 yrs old... alone!! The relative with her did not make the loading!! However she was met by relatives and went on to live and marry in the Boston area and finally settled in Canton Massachusetts raising 5 children , my Dad being one of them
My grandfathers family from Kilkenny also I migrated over to New York before coming to Boston
Would love a Cork county cap Thanks!

I love this idea! I attended UL but Galway is a favorite with beautiful memories of the city centre and playing softball against Galway in college. But, Cork is a beautiful town and Dub always has its great memories from my visits, too! Each county is so unique and I look forward to the rest of the counties in the future!
I have a friend from Wexford so I’ll share this with them, too!
