    Really beautiful – she could do a job in some Irish towns and cities with a history of lacemaking. A great headline too.
    “The lace making skill soon spread beyond Dublin to the poorest parts of the country, and proved a popular means for young women to help support their families…The lace, worn by the wealthiest women across Europe was made by some of the poorest women in Ireland.”
