The Lacemakers' Garden

20180824 headford lace bench 50

Headford Lace Project in collaboration with Headford Environment Group has established a Lace Garden at the Community Orchard. The Environment Group planted a lace-inspired garden of white flowering plants surrounded by a fence made of lace-bobbin shaped posts, and Headford Lace Project commissioned a park bench, the design of which is inspired by Headford Lace. Both the bench and fence were produced by Kilkee Forge. The Headford Lace bench was made possible thanks to funding from Galway County Council Facilities Scheme, prize money received by Headford Lace Project for winning the Tidy Towns Heritage Award (2017), and labour provided by the Rural Social Scheme.
