When the HIV/AIDS pandemic took hold in the 1980s, stigma and secrecy surrounded the virus. Families and friends had to find a quieter way to mourn and remember their loved ones. In Ireland – and many other countries – quilting was the answer.
The Irish Names Project was created in honour and remembrance of those who died in Ireland from AIDS and HIV-related illnesses.
