Celebrating Limerick Lace

“Limerick Lace” is one of the 109 “made in Limerick” projects that were funded under the Limerick- National City of Culture 2014¬†initiative. The project is undertaken by Limerick Museum & Archives and its main objectives are to design and create an exhibition of Limerick Lace for the Limerick Museum and Archives, and to produce a book on the History of Limerick Lace.
