Got to meet Eddie and the wife and I purchased several items made with the cloth he weaved. Well worth a stop.

On a previous trip to Ireland I bought a beautiful green cape in Doolin. The lady in the shop told me it was rare, made by one of the last handweavers in Ireland. Eddie's name was on the tag, and after doing research on him...More
