Limerick lace – intangible cultural heritage

In July 2019, Limerick lace was added to the National Inventory of Intangible Heritage due to the efforts of Dr Matthew Potter, Curator, Limerick Museum and Dr Susan Frawley of Pennywell Lace and Friends of Lace.

30 elements of living Irish culture were given official recognition at the event which took place at Waterways Ireland.

Other practices being recognised were Carrickmacross  lace making, Irish Crochet Lace and Mountmellick embroidery.

Pictured at the presentation of the additions to the Inventory in Dublin were: Dr Matthew Potter; Eileen McCaffrey, Pennywell Lace and Friends of Lace , Josepha Madigan, Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and Caroline Ahern, Pennywell Lace and Friends of Lace.
