Stockings for the Queen: A talk by Balbriggan Heritage Group - Balbriggan, a small coastal town in North Fingal, was once a place with royal connections. From here, the word of fine Balbriggans (synonymous with underwear and hosiery of especially fine knitted fabric) spread around the world. Several renowned hosiery factories were established here, including the well-known Smyth & Co., whose high quality hosiery won clients from the ranks of European aristocracy including the Empress of Austria, the Tsarina of Russia and the Princess of Denmark. Its most famous customer was Queen Victoria of England who first commissioned stockings in 1837, the year of her coronation. Join us for a fascinating talk and showcase of original artefacts of this once acclaimed local craft.
