Lace Making Group. 1906

A Lace Class was started by the Congested District Board, Castletownbere on the 10th March 1906. Miss Mary Roche was the first teacher. At a later date this industry was taken over by the Sisters of Mercy. The Industry flourished; employment and training in machine knitting and in the making of Limerick Lace were given to many girls in Beara. The lace Class was discontinued in the late 1940’s.
