Bealtaine at Dr Patrick J Hillery Library, Miltown Malbay

To celebrate the Bealtaine Festival in May, older people from the Miltown Malbay area were invited to bring any home-made hand crafts to the library where they were put on display. Many knitted items were brought in, as well as paintings, needlepoint, French embroidery, crochet, and woven willow baskets. The standard of the items amazed visitors to the library and is a testament to the skills and pleasure involved in hand crafts.
