The first thing you notice when you leave the country is the countryside and how the roads are lined with green grass and dotted with tiny houses and fields.
There are no cows, chickens or pigs.
But, for all of the country’s problems, it has a lot of artisans.
These are people who make art for the love of their craft.
And it is a joy to meet them.
There is a whole world of artistic expression in Ireland.
Art is a part of life.
It is not just a hobby.
We need to keep it that way, said Eileen O’Connell, who teaches crafts at a children’s school in the city of Cork.
There are so many different ways to make art, she said.
It can be made in a home workshop, on a street or on a riverbank.
There can be a simple needlepoint, embroideries, an embroideried carvings or a piece of fabric.
There’s a whole range of creative expression.
You can make a scarf, or a bracelet, a flower, a piece from a craft store, or even a piece made with a knife.
You don’t have to know how to sew to be a good craftsperson, but you can learn, she added.
You can also learn a few skills in a small shop.
The Irish Craft Festival is a festival that brings together the world’s best craftspeople to show off their skills, and there are a number of workshops throughout the country.
The city of Dublin is also home to a small collection of craft workshops, with the most popular one being the Craftsy in Kildare Street, in Dublin.
The main draw for people from all walks of life is the chance to see people of all ages make things.
The main focus of the event is on creating new designs and using them in the production of clothes.
There is a lot more to craft in the UK than we have been told, said Fiona O’Connor, who works as a designer in the fashion industry.
You have to be careful what you make, but there is a certain amount of creativity in the craft of making things, she told the BBC.
The beauty of the UK is you have a lot to learn about different industries, she noted.
We do a lot in the way we make things, but we are not always as well informed about it as the rest of the world.
There has been a great push in the last few years to get people into the craft industry, but in some areas there is so much work to do, she stressed.
You are in a big country.
We are surrounded by nature and we are all very well-trained, she continued.
But we don’t always get enough training, which can be frustrating.
There’s a huge gap in our knowledge of the craft, said O’Connor, who said that she had worked in the United States and the UK and that she understood the importance of craft and learning.
We should be thinking about this a lot better.
We should be asking the right questions and getting the answers that are going to help us do the right things, said Shannon Ryan, who is from Ireland and works as an artist in Bristol.
We are in this together.
We have a great history, she explained.
It’s not going to be easy to move on, but it’s really exciting and challenging.
