This was one of my highlights of visiting Kilkenny also. Located in a small shop off the courtyard of Kilkenny Design Center, he is a true craftsman & all of his handcrafted pieces are unique & one-of-a-kind. I saw a pendant in the window that spoke to me & my husband purchased it for my 50th birthday which I had celebrated the day before. Desmond is what you would picture as an authentic silversmith, with all the tools of his craft right there. He was completing refurbishing work on a beautiful large championship silver cup that he had originally made in the 1980s for the senior womens soccer championship. There were pictures displayed in the shop of him with the cup over the years each time he had refurbished it. He would be delivering it in the next few days for the new championship, he explained. We saw that cup on the news a few nights later - how cool was that?!. He signed & dated a card with my pendant. It is very special to me & visiting this shop will always be a special memory of our trip.
