County Kilkenny: THE ARTS-AND-CRAFTS MOVEMENT IN COUNTY KILKENNY

Influenced by the late nineteenth-century movement concerned with the promotion of traditional styles incorporating natural materials in the face of increasing industrialisation and mass-production County Kilkenny boasts a number of Art-and-Crafts-style buildings with the majority concentrated about the city area. Foremost amongst these are the houses, both large and small that make up the Talbotsinch Village enclave developed from 1896 by Ellen Odette Desart (née Bischoffsheim), fourth Countess of Desart (1857-1933).
