The Claypipe Centre

Located on the main road, halfway between Athlone and Roscommon in the village of Knockcroghery. Proprietor Ethel Kelly makes all her own clay pipes using moulds, some of which were in use in the village when its claypipe industry was known throughout Ireland and beyond. The Knockcroghery “Dúidín” was famous for many years until the industry was finally destroyed when the village was burned by the Black and Tans in 1921.

Ethel has developed a thriving industry with a worldwide market. An excellent (and unusual) gift for business, sport or commercial presentation.
