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.

If you enhoy and admire painstakingly handcrafted tapestry you'll be enchanted by this work, the output of several people over many years. If you're looking for unambiguous history it must be regarded with some reservations.
