This is a piece taken from a home-woven linen sheet - one of a set given to Mrs. Sheridan when she went to teach in Mt. Hanover about 72 years ago.
The sheets were woven by her mother Mrs. McCabe, Castle Park, Slane and were not new when given as a parting gift to her. They must be nearing, if not over, their century and are quite sound yet.
