“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.

My relative, Michael Patrick Quinn, of Limerick 1785-1862, was an importer of Irish silks, laces, and linens to Canada and the United States, beginning about 1825. I can give you some information about him, but I know little of his Irish heritage. Perhaps, we can help one another.
