Glannwood Carpentry has evolved from the work of two talented Oughterard carpenters: John Canavan, and Eoin Kelly.

Both John and Eoin grew up along the Glann shore of Lough Corrib, where a road snakes Northeast from Oughterard until it reaches a dead end across from the Hill of Doon.

Where does the name come from?
Almost exactly halfway between their homes is a small woodland on one of the peninsulas that jut into the lake, which has been left largely undisturbed for hundreds of years; a pocket of native Irish woods. This wood is known by locals as simply Glann Wood, and was chosen as it represents both a physical space of beautiful trees, and the area of our expertise: wood.
