Traditional Skills

To celebrate traditional skills and crafts in Kerry, five traditional building skills craftspeople (blacksmith, Tomas Allison; thatcher, Liam Broderick; lime practitioner, Hugh Dorrian; stained glass conservator, Glynn Palmer; and joiner Rafal Warszawski) were invited to make their own short video about their work in conserving Kerry’s built heritage.  The ‘Kingdom of Skills’ project is a partnership between Kerry County Council and the Irish Georgian Society. It is funded by the Heritage Council and supported by Kerry County Council.
