Croagh Patrick, where Ireland's patron saint spent 40 days fasting, is the country's most famous pilgrimage site. On "Reek Sunday," the final Sunday in July, tens of thousands of pilgrims climb its 2,500-foot peak. Nestled at Croagh Patrick's feet is the picturesque town of Westport, with majestic mountains on one side and the wild Atlantic on the other. It is here that our worsted wool pullover is made. Its thick-knit collar is inviting on cold days, and the three-quarter buttoned neck allows for easy layering. The Celtic knot design is inspired by the 8th-century Book of Kells.
Made in Ireland. 100% worsted wool. Resin buttons. Men’s sizes M (38-40), L (42-44), XL (46-48), XXL (50-52).
The sweater looks just like the picture in the catalog. The size was accurate, and I was looking forward to wearing it, but the wool is very scratchy and uncomfortable. I tried to wear a T shirt under it, but the arms were still bad. If that doesn't bother you, then you'll really like it.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I ordered three of these in three different sizes, L, XL, and XXL for the men in the family who all happen to have long bodies. The XXL arrived right away and I ended up giving it to the one I had intended the XL for because these seem to run about a size smaller than I was expecting, particularly the length. Loved the sweater though, as did the recipient.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
