It's by no means perfect, but it's better than nothing: Hunt, John,
Irish Medieval Figure Sculpture, 1200-1600, a study of Irish tombs
with notes on costume and armor. Dublin: Irish University Press, 1974.
Granted, these are going to be mostly middle and upper class folks,
but unless you *want* to dress like a bog slogging peasant... :)
What appears to be pleating may in fact be simply folds of fabric.
Lots of good interepretive stuff though, and far less likely to be
anti-Irish propaganda than the illustrations that show up later in
England and on the Continent.
