Boxed Clay Pipe with Scroll For almost 300 years, Knockcroghery lay at the centre of a thriving clay pipe industry. Clay pipes, or duídíns, were popular at wakes, where they were smoked, broken and laid on the grave of the departed. Production ceased when the village was burned by the Black & Tans in 1921, but today, Ethel Kelly is reviving the craft at her Claypipe Visitor Centre. Traditional craftsmanship renders each pipe a unique, authentic Irish craft-piece, and an excellent gift to take home. At The ClayPipe Visitor Centre we have revived the craft of pipe making using the original moulds and tools handed down from generations of pipe making. Each pipe is hand-made using the same skills employed by artisans centuries ago. Traditional craftsmanship renders each pipe a unique, authentic Irish craft-piece. Visit our Claypipe gallery to view our range of Irish Clay pipe designs. These make excellent gifts for anyone celebrating their Irish culture.
