About us

William Connolly, born 1872, was a keen shot all his life and often left Goresbridge early in the morning his gun and dogs to spend the day shooting wild game.

Located in the middle of a shooting heartland, William did not have to go far and the Connolly family quickly got the name in shooting circles as being highly involved in and promoters of this sport.

Since that time, there has been an interest in shooting with the Connolly family. Bill Connolly has kept up that tradition and today, what started out as a hobby, has developed a modern gun store with a full range of shotguns, rifles, ammunition, accessories, clothing and all that goes with outdoor pursuits.

The latest expansion of the RED MILLS gun store was carried out in 2017, in the brand new state of the art RED MILLS retail facility - located at Cillin Hill, on the outskirts of Kilkenny City. Featuring an impressive gun showroom, outdoor pursuits clothing & footwear sections, and a convenient in store cafe, we aim to make your shopping experience as enjoyable as possible.
