Lord Ha’ Mercy PipeLong stemmed clay pipes were usually passed around at wakes in Ireland but also were used as political signifiers to others in the early 20th century, something that holds dear to our hearts here at High Minds.
The pipe's existence was brought to the attention of High Minds by an unnamed scavenger of Dalkey island. High Minds and HensTeeth come together to pay homage to the forgotten relic.The pipes were moulded, stamped, and fired in the recently resurrected clay pipe museum in co. Roscommon where for almost 300 years, Knockcroghery lay at the centre of a thriving clay pipe industry. Production ceased when the village was burned by the Black & Tans in 1921.
