Carrickmacross Lace is one of the Irish embroidered laces that was developed at the time of the Potato Famine. It involves appliqueing cotton organdie onto machine made net and includes decorative needle lace filling stitches. The little circles (twirling) around the outline is a defining characteristic of this lace. The ‘guipure’ cut out section in the corner is a feature, and is achieved by linking areas of the pattern with needle lace picoted bars thus creating a very intricate design of open work.


The lace is decoratively attached to a centre of handkerchief linen.    Size: 24 cm square
