Sample of Inishmacsaint lace, Ireland. Sample of Inishmacsaint lace, Ireland.

A slightly raised and fine needlepoint lace developed in the mid-nineteenth century on the basis of Venetian and Spanish needlepoint forms. It was still being produced in the early twentieth century. Inishmacsaint lace was worked with flax threads.

The method of production is comparable to that of (flat) Youghal needlepoint lace.
