Help save Muings Lace School for the Community

Údarás na Gaeltachta is being approached by Fís na Muingi-Iorras with the object of securing the Muings Lace School for the community, as a heritage project.

The aims of the projects are:

  • To acquire, restore and adapt the existing premises for the creation of a small-dedicated Heritage center/Folk Museum.
  • To create an environment of awareness, interest and recall for the community, past employees and home workers, visiting and returning émigrés.
  • To host lectures, courses, workshops in traditional crafts, including crochet lace, local history, research etc, for adults and children.
  • To exhibit Irish crochet lace, Hand knitting, Machine knitting, documents, photos, memorabilia, textiles, domestic and work related artifacts, implements and furniture. To host guest exhibitions. To install a craft shop and web site.
  • To boost tourism by providing a center of interest and enlightenment where none currently exists; to cater for tourists with special interests in local heritage, ancestry; to attract craft/lace guild tours and school outings.
  • Possible job creation through FÁS schemes.
