O'Neills Irish International Sports Company Ltd. was established in 1918. It is the largest manufacturer of sportswear in Ireland and has manufacturing plants in Dublin and Strabane.

O'Neills has a long relationship with Irish rugby, football and Gaelic Athletic Association and for many years was the exclusive supplier to all three associations.[citation needed] O'Neills also produces amateur boxing kits (vests and shorts). They are currently kit suppliers to a number of inter-county teams in both gaelic football and hurling including Cork GAA, Dublin GAA, Kerry GAA, Mayo GAA, Kilkenny GAA, Tipperary GAA, Galway GAA, Down GAA and Tyrone GAA

The O'Neill brand has become synonymous with the production of team kits, footballs and hurling balls for Gaelic games but is fast becoming a major supplier to rugby and soccer clubs across Ireland, Great Britain, Europe and America. O'Neills was the exclusive supplier to the Irish Provinces for many years and to the Irish International teams during their Triple Crown era.

O'Neills were the official kit supplier to the Romania national rugby union team during the 2007 Rugby World Cup. They currently supply the kits for Harlequins F.C. of the Aviva Premiership, FC United of Manchester of the Northern Premier League Premier Division, Rugby Super League team Widnes Vikings as well as Roslea Shamrocks Fermanagh and Knocknagoshill GAA Kerry.
