The Headford Lace Project is a voluntary community initiative established to research and revive Headford's lacemaking heritage, which dates back to around 1765. We achieve our objectives through workshops, demonstrations, community collaborations, and events that inspire. 

 

Is tionscnamh pobal dheonach í an Headford Lace Project a bhunaíodh chun taighde agus athbheocháin a chur chun cinn ar lásadóirachta eiteáin in Áth Cinn a thosaigh thart ar 1765. Cuirtear na cuspóirí sin chun cinn trí cheardlanna agus taispeántais a eagrú, comhoibriú phobal, agus imeachtaí eile spreagúil.

“At some of the cottage doors were groups of neatly-dressed young girls, seated on low stools, their lace pillows on their laps; and while their fingers moved rapidly through the maze of bobbins, their voices filled the air.”
