I am always in awe of our wonderful suppliers, who create the beautiful and thoughtful gifts that you find in your boxes each and every month.
I thought this month, as we celebrate the wisdom of Ireland’s creative and wise Bean Feasa, that it would be an excellent opportunity to shine a light on some of the women whose talents and dedication have featured with Irish at Heart over the past few years.
All of the women below have found their special niche in Ireland’s creative landscape, and made it truly their own – through skill, innovation, imaginative flair, and of course wisdom. I am thrilled to have worked with all of them, and hope to do so again in the future – as well as the many other Bean Feasa on the Emerald Isle, whose creations are just waiting to be shared with you – my Irish at Heart family.
Foxford Woollen Mills
Agnes Morrogh-Bernard (or Sister Mary Joseph Arsenius as she was known) was a nun of the Religious Sisters of Charity, and founded two convents during her life. At fifty years old she came to the impoverished village of Foxford in Co. Mayo, and was struck with inspiration by the flowing waters of the River Moy.
