Clones Lace was introduced to the Clones area in 1847 as a famine relief scheme. Within a few years 1,500 people were crocheting collars and other attire, which were then worn by royality and became high fashion all over the world. In 1910, Irish Crochet, as it was then known, was introduced to the west of Ireland by the Congested Districts Board and teachers travelled from the North Monaghan/South Fermanagh area to reach it. Booking is essential.
