On behalf of Newpark Country House Killtoon Athlone County Roscommon, I attended the Irish Georgian Society Exhibition at Stokestown Park Co. Roscommon to see traditional building & conservation skills in Action Exhibition.
One of my favorite exhibits was the skills of Fuinseog Woodland Crafts, who use traditional Irish skills to produce individually hand - crafted products from Irish grown timbers, sourced from coppiced and managed woodlands throughout Ireland.
Nature is precious, but to see work lovingly produced using the same skills as ancient tradesmen offers a wonderful alternative to enhance our experience of the past and holds onto traditional Irish for future generations.
Fuinseog Woodland Crafts is the crafts of Niall Miller & Brenda McLoughlin you can contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org to watch a short video that I took at the exhibition of their work go to youtube and search for Fuinseog Woodland Crafts at Heritage Exhibition
