The Ros Tapestry is a unique project that has been ongoing in the south-east since 1998 involving over 150 volunteer stitchers, working on fifteen large-scale tapestries for a permanent exhibition in New Ross. The tapestry tells the history of significant events in the history of the town and surrounds. Worked in many locations, the first tapestry was completed in 2002 and to date 12 of the 15 tapestries are complete. On display in the Ros Tapestry Exhibition Centre, it’s an excellent example of creativity and community spirit on a grand scale and is one of the largest series of embroidered tapestries in Europe.
