These displays include: a small room–with details of the story of our clothing–sewing machine, knitting machine and household articles...
... a collection of artifacts from the area, agricultural implements, and more. Items come from the local area gathered to preserve and illustrate the everyday life here in the west of Ireland...
... a complete cobbler's shop with all its tools and materials to make shoes and boots.
As well, there are tools for leatherwork, farming, carpentry, building, and many agricultural implements from over the years.
