Crafts of Ireland
Crafts in the Traditional sense, as
opposed to the industrial
and commercial senses are integral
parts of the cultural life.
They are not intended to create wealth but rather
to attract blessings.
They do not exist to bring tourists, but to
bring Saints to, and
scare evil spirits from your door.
crafts are the props
of folklore, indicators of the season and
projections of identity. Irish
Crafts are also personal-things to do, and make a
rhythm for the fingers
and hands that links you with the ages. Go now,
and make them, experience
them, keep them alive.
