City of Derry Crystal was established in 1991 by a master cutter and engraver who previously worked for Waterford Crystal. I am Michael Bond and I bought City of Derry Crystal in 1994 and my son, Kevin, joined me in the business in 2003. Kevin, after he left college, went to work for Waterford Crystal, where he was trained in glass cutting.
City of Derry Crystal is situated in the beautiful Derry City Craft Village, which you can take a virtual tour of. It’s well worth a visit, particularly in the summer months, when there are informal music sessions in the square. There are many other talented crafts people trading in The Village too.
