Ethel Kelly’s workshop is located on the site of a famous Irish Claypipe factory in the village of Knockcroghery in County Roscommon. Knockcroghery is renowned for almost 300 years for the production of clay pipes or dúidíns. By the late 1800’s virtually the entire village was involved in the manufacture of the pipes which were distributed extensively throughout the country. They have revived the craft of pipe making using the original moulds and tools. Each pipe is hand-made using the same skills employed by artisans centuries ago. Considering the historical and cultural significance of these unique pieces, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a genuine piece of Irish history at a very affordable price.
