Irish Lace has always been part of the Irish needlework tradition and Irish Crochet is a lace that developed in the 1840,s during the Irish famine.

It quickly spread across the country and proved a great way for young women to help support their families during hard times. It required little equipment, all you need is thread and a hook so it suited women in rural parts of the country where there were few employment opportunities.

Lace making schools opened throughout the country and so different styles developed in certain towns and villages like Carrickmacross, Kenmare, Limerick, Youghal and New Ross, many of which are still going strong.

In those days, it wasn’t difficult for women to pick up these skills as they were mostly already very efficient at needlework so they picked it up very quickly. These days in this fast paced world, it takes a great deal of patience but give it time, it is worth it.

Irish lace had a fantastic international reputation in its heyday and was worn by some of the most wealthy and glamorous women but it largely died out during the industrial revolution when machine made lace took over so it’s important now more than ever that we keep this craft alive by modernizing it while respecting its history and tradition.
