Une magnifique photo en gros plan d'une dentelle Irlandaise faite à l'aide d'un "fil de contour" unique est présentée dans le livre de N. Lovesey "Creative design in needlepoint lace". Voir page 141.

Pages 71, 97, 98 et page 111 sont aussi je crois des travaux au point irlandais.

A beautiful close-up photograph of an Irish Point made using a single thread "fil de contour" is presented in the book of N. Lovesey "Creative design in needlepoint lace". See page 141.
Pages 71, 97, 98 and page 111 are also, I think, Irish Point, but not sure about the contour thread.

Yes, I discovered that when I read Elizabeth Kurella's new book on Youghal. Surprised me.  My book review http://needlelacetalk.ning.com/group/youghallace/page/book-review-o...

I had not realized, till I read the caption under Christiane's photo, that Youghal used only one thick outline thread, - not the usual 2 threads laid together. 

I presume the filling stitches are worked Around the whole thread, - not stitched Through the thread like in Halas Lace.

The photo is one of Judith Connor's. I think it an especially good example of Youghal/Kenmare.  And the quality of the photo itself is also very good. So we can see how it was made.
