Cló Mhuire is an Irish name which means ‘Mary’s publishing’ or ‘Our Lady’s publishing’.

The inspiration for writing and creating cards, and then setting up a Christian card publication work began during the years called aside into contemplative prayer. While it is a home-based work, it fulfills the desire to write and publish a Christian message as well as being a means of evangelisation in a world where God continues to call each one of us, and to use our God-given gifts, which will surprise and lead us onto new paths. To respond to that call is to know joy!

All the poems, verses, and quotes, are written by Frances Daly, copyright © 2000-2021. The  card designs are also created by Frances Daly, copyright © 2000-2021, except where otherwise stated.
