Limerick lace is an embroidered needle lace formed on a mesh using one or both of two techniques...
  • Tambour - where chain stitch is created using a hook. Tambour lace refers to a family of lace made by stretching a fine net over a frame (the eponymous Tambour, from the French for drum) and creating a chain stitch using a fine hook to reach through the net and draw the working thread through the net.
  • Needlerun - where stitches are darned onto the ground using a needle.

This is associated with the town of Limerick in Ireland.  Limerick is a city in County Limerick, Ireland. It is located in the Mid-West Region and is also part of the province of Munster.

When President Kennedy visited Limerick in 1963 he was presented with a lace christening robe.
