Through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries ‘paper stainers’ were numerous in Ireland. Some of their papers are still to be found in various states of repair throughout the country. With the extensive restoration of period buildings in recent years fragments of paper are regularly exposed with the removal of more recent wall coverings. Occasionally there is enough of the original artwork to reproduce the wallpaper. . .
