Delia adds her Pottery Studio to Castleisland’s Main Street at No. 94



It’s unlikely that Castleisland has ever had a serious potter of its own.

One who made pots and plates and jugs and mugs for the people of the locality.

The nearest we’ve ever had were ‘earthenware merchants’ Thomas Kearney and John Riordan both on Main Street in the late 1880s.

They may well have been potters themselves but they were, most likely, merchants for the merchandise of others.

What’s in a name ? Potters are often referred to nowadays as ceramicists and a practitioner of that class of craft and talent launched her own studio / shop at No. 94 Main Street, Castleisland on Monday morning, August 10th 2020 at 10am.

After her first week of trading in the new shop, Delia is delighted with the warmth of the welcome she got from fellow and neighbouring business people in the town.

She’s also taken aback with the level of business she’s been doing in terms of straight sales from stock and from orders received during the week.
