The origins of Hyland's Nursery can be traced back to 1945, when Elizabeth Hyland (nee Cooney) inherited the land, that the Nursery is currently situated on, from her Brother John Cooney. Elizabeth and her husband William Hyland, along with their two sons; Joseph (Joe) and Henry (Har), then started to produce flowers, fruit, and vegetable crops, such as; Daffodils, Strawberries, Raspberries, Potatoes, Cabbage, etc. for sale and supply to local markets.
In 1986 Joe and his wife Kathleen O'Reilly-Hyland, Author of: "A Village Curate" "Times & Tides Of Uppertown" and most recently "Profile Of A Parish. Oulart The Ballagh in the Twentieth Century" opened a Garden Center to cater for the growing interest in gardening throughout Ireland at the time.
In 1991 their Son; John Joe, joined them in the family business, having completed a three year Horticulture Diploma, at Kildalton College, Pilltown, Co. Kilkenny. John Joe's training and expertise have helped develop the business, into a thriving Nursery, growing Hedging and Trees, as well as many other plant and shrub varieties, for sale and supply to individuals and contractors throughout Ireland.
As Hyland's Nursery has developed under John Joe and his Wife Aisling's stewardship, they found an ever increasing demand from their customers for design and planting work, which has led John Joe to establish and develop Hyland Landscaping over the past 15 years to facilitate his customers needs.
John Joe and Aisling's children; Sean (7), Joanne (6) and Roisin (3), although still very young, are already showing signs of continuing on the Hyland Gardening and Nursery traditions established by their Great Grandparents; Elizabeth and William, over 60 years ago, as they love to potter around and get their hands dirty in Aisling's flower, fruit and vegetable gardens. We'll have to wait a while to see if their baby brother Thomas (1) will show the same enthusiasm, but given the Hyland tradition, we'd be surprised if he doesn't.
