At Victor Dwyer Shoes, we've been providing quality footwear for generations. For nearly 70 years from our store on Shop Street in the heart of Drogheda, we have been an integral part of local shopping life. A proud family run store, we have always been a destination for generations of families from here and further afield, and we have been blessed to celebrate some of the most important occasions with our customers, from a baby’s first shoe to communions, confirmations, weddings and more.
Where it all began
Our store on 6 Shop Street has welcomed a hundred thousand footsteps since it first opened its doors on 13 November 1953. Opened by Paddy and Carmel Dwyer, they began selling high quality footwear to all those in the local community and further afield.
1960s - 80s
Through the years
Their son, Victor, joined the family business in 1974, followed by Paddy in 1978. In 1985, Paddy opened up his own store on Shop Street, specialising in mens' shoes, with Victor continuing to cater for ladies' and childrens' shoes.
Continuing the tradition
Victor’s wife, Margo, joined him in the shop in the late 1980's and now the next generation is also involved in the family business, with Richard joining his parents in 2019, while Paddy’s daughter, Sarah Jane, is also an integral part of his store, which is today located at 11 Shop Street.
