yup I have heard of it,

yup I have heard of it, it's a type of lace that originated in ireland during the 19th century, it was taught to anyone willing to learn free of charge in hopes of helping the economy. if you can find a book called Irish Crochet: Techniques and Projects by The Priscilla Publishing Co. or Masterpieces of Irish Crochet Lace by Therese de Dillmont those would be the two I would recommend to learn a bit about it.
