The dresser is neither humble nor mute. Whether regularly reorganised and celebrated,

or serving as a more static backdrop to kitchen or shed, the kitchen dressers of Ireland tell

stories of individual and shared craft, of linkages across communities and through time,

and of layers and layers of human experience, to those who care to listen.”


Dr. Clíona O’Carroll, Béaloideas/Folklore and Ethnology, University College
