Dr. Matthew Potter from Limerick Museum and Archives is working on a book on the history of Limerick Lace.

He and his colleagues have done extensive searches in the newspapers, archives and online resources. They have spoken to people who have been making Limerick Lace, others who have Limerick Lace pieces in their families, and people who have come forward to speak about their connections to Limerick Lace. The book will be launched in December 2014.

    I was in Limerick last september and visited the castle but wanted to lear about your lace. I asked about the lace museum and no one at Information could direct me. Also your book was not on display in their souvenir shop. Please make contact with other tourist site in the area. I was so desapointed.

    Hi Helene, the Amazing Lace exhibition opened on 10 December 2014 in the Jim Kemmy Municipal Museum. (, not in King John’s Castle. In September, we were still working on the book and on the exhibition. You can order the book online following the link on this page. We are sorry you were disappointed, but we hope you’ll have the chance to visit again!
