Peggy Mc Donagh was an Aran knitter from Inis Mór. Muriel refused to sell any Aran jumper that had not been made on the islands, and that rule held until The Country Shop closed its doors in 1978. This meant that the women of Aran had a regular source of income, often knitting long into the night by paraffin lamp after a long day working in the fields, shore or in the home.
