The History Of All Irish Imports & Owners Jeanne & Joe Fahy

Jeanne and Joe have many ancestors who were born in Ireland - the most recent being her maternal grandparents and his paternal grandparents. The couple's first trip to Ireland was in 1977 on a CIE Tour sponsored by Joe's Alma Mater, La Salle College. They immediately fell in love with the people, the Country and the quality of Irish-made products.

This experience led to Jeanne's dream of opening an Irish import business. In 1982, after receiving a small inheritance, Jeanne was able to "retire" as a Registered X-Ray Technician and fulfill her dream by opening All Irish Imports at a small new mall in Cape May. Joe, a Licensed Social Worker, maintained his employment at the Cape May County Board of Social Services. In 1984 All Irish moved to its current location at the corner of Lafayette and Jackson Streets in the heart of Cape May - and it has parking.

As part of their quest for high quality Irish goods, Jeanne and Joe attend the Irish Trade Board Show held every January at the RDS in Dublin. There they choose fine Irish-made jewelry, clothing, giftware and other items to carry in their shop. However, certain novelty items are simply not available from Ireland.

Jeanne's grandniece, Alex, joined the All Irish team in 2005 as did Joe when he retired in 2008. The shop has a casual, friendly atmosphere and prides itself on customer service. Cape May is a popular seashore resort which draws visitors from several states within a one day drive and a few from just about every other state. Longtime customers return to All Irish every year while on vacation. Some who were in a stroller for their first visit are now bringing their children to the shop.

As they approach their 35th year in business, Jeanne and Joe are modernizing their website to include on-line purchasing.
