In Kinsale, County Cork master crystal cutter, Gerry Daly set up his crystal venture. Gerry Daly discovered that cutting at a higher angle than other crystal crafts men resulted in a magnificent silvery sparkle. The finished piece had a very crisp, sharp feel to it. When placed next to the standard production range, Gerry's deep cut piece completely out-sparkled them. The business is now run by Gerry's two sons and they are happy to demonstrate how they learned the craft from their father.
