A Little About Me
I'm Lelia Doolan, owner of The Design Gallery at the historic Laurence Gate in Drogheda, Ireland. I have been running my luxury giftware and lifestyle store for the past 17 years and simply adore showcasing the beautiful range of Irish crafts and design-led products I carefully select - always with my customers in mind.
My passion for Irish design stems from many years working at trade shows and many holiday periods within my father's textile business, Weave of The Irish and Irish Tapestries. I loved the sourcing and buying aspect and that is something I've continued to do within The Design Gallery to ensure a comprehensive range of giftware that always delights.
Away from work (although I'm not sure I ever truly leave!), I enjoy swimming, yoga and also being lucky enough to live beside the sea that allows plenty of beach walks and being active outdoors.
My biggest passion (outside my wonderful family of course) is going to concerts and music festivals and also being part of an amazing local Community Choir, but like everyone, I've had to put that on hold for the foreseeable!
My husband David and I have three fabulous children, Calum, Max and Ally who together keep our lives and household busy with all their sports and activities. Like everyone, life is busy but I wouldn't have it any other way. I feel very grateful to have my lovely family around me and a wonderful business with the most supportive customers in the world.
I am thrilled to now take The Design Gallery online and will continue to work hard to present the most beautiful products for all my customers near and far. I'm looking to the future and staying positive! Let's continue to look after each other and keep safe and well.
Lots of love,
