This book explores the development of Carrickmacross lace from the early part of the nineteenth century when the wife of the Rector of Donaghmoyne brought back some Italian applique lace from her honeymoon. Soon the area began training young women as lace makers and a whole cottage industry emerged. Nellie O’Cleirigh was born in Clonmel and went to Dublin School of Art. She has a significant collection of old Irish lace which has been exhibited in Ireland and abroad.

During the 1960s and the following decades a significant number of artists and craftspeople began moving to West Cork, following their dream of a simple life in an unspoilt landscape. They were attracted to West Cork in particular by the stunning landscapes and low property prices but as the creative community grew, it became an attraction in its own right. For a brief period, a rare combination of circumstances existed in the region which facilitated the growth of arts and crafts in West Cork and gained the region a glowing reputation for its unique culture, combining a laid back life style with traditional country living. West Cork Inspires tells the story of the creative community in West Cork and profiles twenty-two of its most outstanding protagonists.
