Fermanagh based, Tom O Brien has made thousands of baskets over the years and still gets a kick out of every basket he creates. He enjoys making a connection with the willow. He learnt the tradition hands on, seeking out the great basket weavers in the North West and Mayo. He has been weaving for 30 years. People now come to him to learn his craft. Truly a labour of love.
