The Headford Lace Story: Sunday 20th June, 7pm

This Sunday at 7pm, find out how a group of women in Headford, Co. Galway, stumbled across a mostly forgotten history of lacemaking in their town, and how a tiny fragment of lace became the starting point for countless cultural and regenerative events and projects – and created a sisterhood along the way: the Headford Lace Project.

This feature-length documentary includes music created in Headford, inspired by the lace story – from Mairead Berrill and HeadfordMusic Works, Drumadore, and 2018 RTÉ Folk Awards nominees The Whileaways. It also includes a portion of ‘Caritas Dei’ by the Gloriae Dei Cantores Schola, used by kind permission. Huge thanks to them all!

Listen on, or find Claremorris Community Radio in your radio app. The programme will also be repeated on Monday 21st June at 5 pm.
