Magical moment as the new Youghal Christmas tree lights up Barry's Lane in the town centre. The beautiful tree is straight out of the wrapper and was installed today, Friday, 26th, November, 2021, and what a wonderful sight it is.

The switching on of the town's Christmas lights took place last weekend and the whole business community, local town council, and the residents living on the street have gone to extraordinary lengths with their wonderful window decorations to collectively help put the sparkle in Youghal for Christmas 2021.

The Christmas Market is returning to Barrys Lane once again on 11th & 18th December 2021.

UP CORK!

Youghal native and Berlin based designer, graffiti writer and muralist D.VE creating his latest artwork called 'Tidal Wave' at Green Park, Youghal, County Cork. His work is much respected and seen on the streets of Berlin and other capitals.

The large scale mural with a marine theme has been approved by the council. 'Neptune' the god of freshwater and sea forms part of the three panel artwork which is appropriate as the great river Blackwater ends its long journey to enter the open sea at this spot.

Another pottery relief art mural depicting Youghal's maritime history by ceramicist Tony Breslin M.A. can be seen on the walls at Green Park at the river end of the park.

Plans are afoot in making the historic park a key part of the infrastructure of the town with the renewed interests in green spaces.

Locations like the front strand, the boardwalk, the slob bank and green spaces have ‘become living rooms’ for people during the coronavirus pandemic.

Youghal Lace - Faces behind the Lace - Youghal Lace - Faces behind the Lace.

Take a virtual tour behind the scenes of the lacemaking rooms in the Presentation Convent, Youghal, County Cork, from over a century ago.

This short film brings you inside the lace making rooms at the Presentation Convent Youghal, Co. Cork and shows the incredible detailed work by the women and children in making the Youghal lace. It was a time just after The Great Hunger - The Irish Famine - A period of mass starvation, disease, and emigration in Ireland between 1845 and 1849. The evocative images and music brings you back to that time and puts a face to those women and children who created the lace in that traumatic time in Irish history.

- During the Great Hunger (Irish Famine) of the mid-1800’s, a piece of Italian lace was unraveled by a nun, Mother Mary Ann Smith of Presentation Convent, Youghal, and carefully examined until the stitches were mastered. She then selected the children capable of the best needlework and taught them what she had learned. Their newly acquired skills brought money into their homes at a time when it was sorely needed to pay rent and buy food. No doubt quite a few evictions were avoided by those industrious children.

The Convent Lace School was opened in 1852 and in 1863 a shawl of Youghal Lace was presented to the Princess of Wales on the occasion of her marriage to the future King Edward VII. It was the first of many presentations to the Royal Family. Queen Victoria’s coronation veil was made of Youghal Lace, as was a train worn by Queen Mary on a visit to India in 1911.

Several medals were awarded to Youghal Lace in international exhibitions over the years including the Chicago World’s Fair 1893 and the Exhibition of British Lace in London 1906. After Mary Ann Smith’s death in 1872, the work in the lace room was carried on by Sister Mary Regis Lynch, who produced many new designs. The Lace School flourished until World War I, which effectively did away with many lace markets. However, Youghal Lace continued until the late 1950s.

In 1987 history repeated itself when another nun from Presentation Convent Youghal, Sister Mary Coleman, along with Veronica Stuart from Carrigaline, Co. Cork, unraveled a piece of Youghal Lace, as Mary Ann Smith had done. The stitch work was studied and techniques noted, with Veronica Stuart even traveling to the Continent to perfect her skills in needle-lace. In 1989 she began to teach Youghal Needlelace, ensuring its survival. It is still being made today, having its own range of 100 separate stitches and is known for a hallmark shell border, alluding to the town’s marine history.

The wording on the back wall in the lace making room is Latin "Laborare Est Orare" translated to English meaning " To work is to pray" You can see this in the film clip.

Fan made of lace: Wedding present to Princess May from the Earl of Crew.

Fan made of lace: Used by Queen Alexandra at her coronation ceremony.

Queen Mary's wedding dress train contained 5,250, 000 stitches made from nearly 12 miles of thread.

The skill of lace making is still retained in Youghal to this day.
