March Madness at Nora Nora

March is our favorite month of the year, especially St. Patricks Day. In celebration of the end of winter, we are having a pretty awesome sale at Nora Nora. McKernan scarves are now marked down to make room for new inventory. Stock up now on these handwoven and luxurious scarves by Eugene and Anke McKernan of County Clare. Also reduced this month we have the vintage Irish travel posters. With the Euro being at an historic low , hopefully many more travelers will experience the Emerald Isle. Having lived in Ireland and with my travels over the pond each year, I have a pretty good knowledge of the country and happy to answer questions you may have. 

Nora Nora had 2 winners for last months  "Where's Ned" contest. Two correct answers came in within a minute of each other and in the spirit of St. Valentines Day, we honored both. Ellen from Portland (Maine) and Steve from Falmouth (Maine) were our winners. Both received a pair of Connemara Socks for their correct answers. Ned was found at MacCarthys Bar, which is in Castletownbere, County Cork. Look for Ned in our next newsletter. Email us his location in Ireland and the first correct nswer wins a pair of Connemara Socks.

Bye Bye Winter and Hellooooooo Spring! 



Welcome to Nora Nora

In our yearly travels to Ireland, from Eyeries to Enniskerry and Doolin to Dublin, we search for contemporary artists whose work and crafts are unique and of the highest quality. We invite you to sit back and browse through our collection of wonderful Irish handcrafts today.
