What is The National Dress of Ireland?

Irish clothing, for both men and women, generally consisted of two important pieces: a léine and a brat. The léine was a tunic-like garment, usually made out of linen and reached to about the knee.

If you were wealthy you could also wear a garment made out of silk to impress your friends and neighbours.

Early Irish men and women both wore a garment called the line, a piec_e_ of clothing that would not be out of place today. Its earliest use appears to have been the 8th century.
