Sad to report that the last linen factory in Belfast is closing Copeland's Linen factory is closing it's doors.
Copeland Linens - Irish linen
When one thinks of the number of linen factories that were once in Belfast this is a sad day. The factory supplied both the British Royal Family, and the Irish President and Government. And had a work force from both sides of the divide. Best regards to the owner for a happy retirement.
