About us

O’Neills of Gortin are a family run business founded by John P and Mary O’Neill in the small village of Gortin Co Tyrone in 1965. Starting trading as a general store selling everything from a match to a television they read the market well  with the advent of supermarkets and tv rental companies and diversified into musical instruments to meet the demands of a huge revival in Irish Traditional music.

From a small music retailer they grew the business into Ireland’s largest musical distributor Gortin Musical Wholesale and creating their own brand “Boorinwood” named after natural woodland on the edge of the village.

Being an electronics genius, John P again identified the potential of the internet and acquired one of the first computers in the area. Teaching himself to build a website, he soon had www.boorinwoodmusic.com up and running. His instruments were now visible worldwide but his ability to supply the increased sales led him to import directly from the manufacturers.

Unfortunately illness caught up with them and the wholesale business was wound down in 2013. With the death of Mary in 2014 and JOHN P in 2016, the business passed to son Sean who continues to meet the needs of the traditional music community specialising mainly in AccordionS
