Detail of scroll:

The village of Knockcroghery in County Roscommon, Ireland, was famous for almost 300 years as a centre for the production of clay pies or ‘Dúidíns’.  In the late 1800s virtually the entire village was involved in the manufacture of the pipes with sever different families involved, each with their own kiln.  The Dúidíns were smoked extensively throughout the country by both men and women.  They were particularly popular at wakes were trays of tobacco filled pipes, Guinness and whiskey would be laid out for the mourners production of these pipes ceased abruptly in 1921 when the village was burned down during the War of Independence.  We have now revived the traditional craft of pipe making on the original site of the Curley’s claypipe facory.  using the original moulds and tools each pipe is hand-made using the same skills employed by artisans centuries ago. Traditional craftsmanship renders each pipe a unique, authentic Irish craftpiece.

Traditionally before smoking, the shank of the claypipe was dipped into some Guinness or Whiskey.  This sealed the mouthpiece and imparted a good flavour to the clay.
