Media echoes – Limerick Leader

Today’s Limerick Leader has an article by Dr. Matthew Potter on the history of Limerick Lace.
Below an excerpt:

Limerick lace created a rich material culture.

Over many decades, it produced a large output of lace products, from dresses, christening shawls and ecclesiastical robes to handkerchiefs and doilies. It was worn by thousands of women, including a few who figure prominently in the pages of history, such as Queen Victoria, American First Lady Edith Roosevelt and Countess Markievicz.
