The Irish Crochet Lace Revival group, along with local lacemakers from the
Clondalkin area and artist Fiona Harrington have been working on a project
that aims to celebrate the rich history of crochet lace in the area and reconnect
to this important local history.

The lacemakers are creating a replica of the Clondalkin Round Tower using
traditional Crochet Lace techniques in a variety of cotton thread (supported
with copper wire) that will go on permanent display at the Round Tower Visitor
Centre in Clondalkin. This event will launch the finished artwork.

Fiona Harrington, Irish Crochet Lace Revival and the local lacemakers who
attended a recent workshop will be present to talk about the process of making
the copper and thread tower, as well as display other samples of Irish Crochet
Lace. Light refreshments will be served.
