Speaker Cathy Scuffil

The Liberties of Dublin has historically been home to an industrial working class. Much of this history related to brewing and distilling and the associated businesses and trades. However, another industry, which has all but disappeared, has left a lasting legacy in terms of place names and also in the social consciousness: weaving and the textile industry in general have had a long association with the area.

Join Dublin City Libraries’ Historian-in-Residence, Cathy Scuffil, as she explores the many links between The Liberties and weaving, whilst making the case to revive this craft in its historic core.
