The former Muings Lace School premises

Since the Committee was established, its Core Membership has remained firmly focused on achieving its mission, the realisation of a centre that will show-case and celebrate the history of the Congested Districts Board’s Lace School Industry in Erris, a place of pride in our community and a source of interest and enlightenment to visitors.
Plans of the envisaged development of the former Muings Lace School Site will be on display at out tent on Heritage Day. An ‘A1’ exhibit of Architectural drawing by our Architect Mark Stephens can be discussed with committee members. Full planning permission has been granted by Mayo County Council.
