About the Author
Founded in May 1910, the aim of the ICA was to improve the standard of life in rural Ireland through education and co-operative effort . Today the ICA has 700 local Guilds in cities, towns and rural areas throughout Ireland. They continue to offer support and fun as well as opportunities to make friends, learn new skills and contribute to the wider community. Every day, the women share with each other nuggets of advice, tried-and-tested methods and practical help, and they hope this book will pass on some of that knowledge to you.
