The Ros Tapestries depict events around the Anglo-Norman arrival to the South East of Ireland

Ros Tapestry Exhibition Centre

The Ros Tapestry Project is a massive community initiative that was conceived in 1998 and has been developed since then by over a hundred dedicated volunteers.

Comprising 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 to the South East of Ireland, specifically the founding of the town of New Ross, Co. Wexford by William Marshall and Isabel de Clare.

The content for these tapestry panels was exhaustively researched and designed by Anne Bernstorff and the hours of stitching fit into the lives of ordinary people who farm, nurse, teach and look after families amongst other professions.

Their contribution to the craft skills of the country and to contemporary visual culture is enormous..
