On March 8th 2014 we had the Cassandra Hand Rose Event in Clones. I was commissioned to make a Clones lace Tiara for the occasion. Lee-Ann McPhillips won the heat and had the honour of wearing the tiara. Hopefully she’ll keep wearing it and show it off in Tralee in August 2014:)

Then, as part of the St Patrick’s Eve Parade in Clones, Eva’s painting, which used Clones Lace Roses and Wild Roses, was attached to the front of the car in which Lee-Ann, the Cassandra Hand Rose was driven in the Parade!:)
