A major exhibition centred on Limerick Lace has opened in the city.
Speaking at the launch of 'Hybrid; Limerick Lace Liminal Identity' at the Limerick School of Art and Design was Jacqui Hayes, Limerick City and County Archivist.
‘Hybrid; Limerick Lace Liminal Identity’ reflects the fact Limerick lace is a hybrid lace, it is both a handmade and a machine made lace as the lace is embroidered on a machine made net. This coming together of old and new technology to make something beautiful has been the defining aspect of Limerick Lace. Picture: Alan Place
