Derek OʼDonnell, the proprietor of Countryman Barbershop started out his barbering career over eighteen years ago and has won many awards since then.
His most notable achievement was representing Ireland in Paris in the OMC European Cup 2016 as part of the IHF Gents Team Ireland and is still currently a member of the team.
Derek decided to open his own barbershop, Countryman Barbershop in February of 2020 in Edenderry, a town close to his heart and home. While he was in the process of opening his barbershop he was faced with many challenges including the Covid pandemic which delayed the initial opening until the 29th June 2020.
The business thrived but unfortunately had to close again due to Covid restrictions.
Countryman Barbershop is back open now and celebrating a year in business.
Derek caters for all ages and offers a range of services to his customers from kids cuts, skin fades to gentlemen’s haircuts. He stocks high end hair products and offers advice on hair care. He is also skilled in the art of hot towel shaving and is excited to start offering this service to his customers when Covid restrictions permit him to do so.
Customers can book an appointment with Derek through Facebook, Instagram or alternatively they can pop into the shop where he also accommodates walk ins where available.
Derek would like to thank his family and friends for their support along the way and of course his loyal customers who continue to support him.
Countryman Barbers can be contacted at 52 JKL St, Edenderry, Co. Offaly or 046 973 8209.
