The Ros Tapestry Project is a massive community initiative in progress in the County of Wexford.
Conceived in 1998 and being developed by over 150 dedicated volunteers, fifteen striking embroidered panels – 6 x 4 foot each – it is a cultural and historical accolade to its creators.
The Ros Tapestries depict events around the Anglo-Norman arrival in the South East of Ireland, especially the founding of the town of New Ross, Co. Wexford by the famous Norman knight, closely connected with four English kings, William Marshal, and his wife, Isabel de Clare, daughter of Strongbow.
The Gala Recital in St. Mary’s Church on Sunday 15th April 2018, was a resounding success. Finghin Collins performance was outstanding, as always, and the wonderful soprano voice of Clodagh Kinsella made it a memorable afternoon of music and song. As well as enjoying the musical entertainment, the audience had an opportunity to view two of our magnificent tapestries which were on display in the beautiful setting of St. Mary’s Church during the recital. An afternoon much enjoyed by all who attended. Sincere thanks to all of you who helped to make this such a successful fundraiser.
