Hey everyone, just wondering but does anyone here know of hats from Irish archaeology in any time period?

There's quite a few late medieval examples on public display in the NMI Kildare St.

Hi Dave, ya I thought I saw some last time I was there. Any chance you have any pics you could share, or do you know of anywhere online I could see them. Thanks in advance.

Brendan Griffin has a copy of a hat I made once, based on one of the NMI finds. Any images Brendan?

Mairead Dubleavy's book on Irish Dress has a number of illustrations of bog finds.

Yes Dunleavy is the place to go for pix of hats - or else for more detail make a booking and take the trip to see the NMI topographical files.
