Irish-made stocking fillers to marked ‘Irish-Made Stocking Fillers’


Among the stalls…

…saddler Lucy Cushley (above) worked with a team making leather goods for the horses and set of the newly-released Matt Damon movie The Last Duel.

Lucy sez:

“I was brought in as a member of the Society of Master Saddlers after a shout went out for saddlers, so I was part of a team which worked in a warehouse on materials which appeared in the film.

“While I adore saddling, most of my income is from leather goods. I’ve been asked to make diverse items from weight lifting belts to wedding album covers to handbags.”

    let’s demand that children from age 9 have to wear a mask for 6 hours a day but at the same time let’s have an enormous orgy of spending and consumerism indoors with thousands of people.
    is this the altar we sacrifice our children?
