Carrickmacross lace

         is a type of needle lace. Originating in Carrickmacross, Ireland in the early 19th century, it is still practised today.
         The lace is worked by tacking fine muslin onto machine netting. The design is outlined, the unwanted muslin is then cut away and the open areas are filled in with needle lace.
