Support Us In Our Mission
Shuttle Knit is a partnership between the Traveller and settled communities based in Wicklow. Our mission is to improve quality of life for Traveller Women and their families through enterprise. We started over 20 years ago, when Sr Catriona Geraghty invited Traveller women into her home for knitting and a chat. We were then, and remain now, dedicated to “Knitting Communities Together”.
