This book explores the development of Carrickmacross lace from the early part of the nineteenth century when the wife of the Rector of Donaghmoyne brought back some Italian applique lace from her honeymoon. Soon the area began training young women as lace makers and a whole cottage industry emerged. Nellie O’Cleirigh was born in Clonmel and went to Dublin School of Art. She has a significant collection of old Irish lace which has been exhibited in Ireland and abroad.
