Limerick lace is an embroidered needle lace formed on a mesh using one or both of two techniques...
- Tambour – where chain stitch is created using a hook.

This is associated with the city of Limerick in Ireland.
When John F. Kennedy visited Limerick in 1963 he was presented with a lace christening robe.
