A little history

Kilrush Pottery (trading name: Celtic Ceramics) in Co. Clare was founded by a group of German and Irish businessmen in 1961.  It operated successfully for a number of years, producing items similar to West German pottery of the time as well as Celtic-themed designs. They used a variety of backstamps (e.g. ‘Celtic: Irish Fine Earthenware, Made in the Republic of Ireland’).  The firm was taken over by Rosenthal in 1976, but went into decline before closing in 1983.
