Overview

The Ros Tapestry is a unique project ongoing in the South East since 1998, involving over 150 stitchers working on 15 giant tapestries panels It is an excellent example of creativity and community spirit on a grand scale and depicts Norman History linking all the sites in Ireland's Ancient East. Ros Tapestry is one of the largest series of embroidered tapestries in Europe. Each tapestry depicts a different significant event in history. A tale told in thread. The first tapestry was completed in 2002 and to date 14 of the 15 tapestries are complete Our project is a unique and exquisite work of art and deserves to get huge exposure, and be available for everyone to enjoy. Open 6 days 10a.m. -5p.m. Sunday 11a.m. - 3 p.m.
