Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. I especially recommend the IDENTIFICATION-HISTORY group, which fits best with your interests. Although we do also have an IRISH CROCHET group. I looked at your website and I would like to suggest that you consult a book by Santina Levey LACE, published in the 1980s.  Her dating and historical knowledge is better than any other writer that I have encountered. She actually has worked out a way to date laces, based on comparison with designs in woven fabric and sample books with known dates. Try and get a copy on interlibrary loan. I also noticed that you attributed Irish crochet to the 18th century. It did not begin until the 19th century when lace merchants were looking for ways to speed up the lace making process and sell it cheaper. I am a little hazy myself on historical dates for the start of crochet itself, but it is fairly recent. I am not sure that any crochet is earlier than the 1700s (18th c), and certainly not the 1400s. But I readily admit that my historical expertise is mostly in bobbin lace, not crochet. Take some time to explore our site. The IDENTIFICATION-HISTORY group has links to good sites online and a recommended book list.
