Ros Tapestry Exhibition CentreNew Ross Wexford - Ireland South
Ros Tapestry Exhibition Centre features a permanent exhibition of the acclaimed and embroidered Ros Tapestries. The Ros Tapestry Project is a massive community imitative in progress in the County of Wexford. Conceived in 1998 and being developed by over a hundred dedicated volunteers, fifteen striking embroidered panels, 1.8 x 1.4 metres in dimension, it is a cultural and historical accolade to its' creators. This dramatic narrative is a tale told in thread, as a celebration of Ireland’s history unfolds with a special emphasis on the Norman legacy in the south east of Ireland. Customs, traditions, rituals and folklore of our past are featured, from the crowning of a Celtic king, a Norman battlefield scene, the building of medieval Tintern Abbey to the founding of the town of New Ross in Co.Wexford by the Norman Earl of Pembroke, William Marshall and his wife Isabel de Clare in 1207. This unique attraction is an exciting blend of innovative design, where visitors can browse through the fascinating historical resource at their leisure, view tapestry demonstrations first hand, or spend time in the design orientated gift shop.
