Richard St. George’s mother, Mary St. George, is known for introducing bobbin lacemaking to her hometown of Headford in County Galway, Ireland. This small industry provided employment and an economic boost to the impoverished women in Headford, who still carry on this tradition today. Join Headford lacemaker Norma Owens, who will demonstrate this technique of lacemaking at the Museum.
