At Easter, the Lily is worn as symbol of remembrance for Irish republican combatants who died during or were executed after the 1916 Easter Rising. It was introduced in 1926 by Cumann na mBan, as a lapel pin, the sales of which raised money for the dependents left behind. With the passage of time, the Easter Lily has become a symbol of unity, equality and freedom for Irish people all over the world.
This sterling silver Lily ring with a beautiful stamen, comes with silver shamrock and smaller sterling silver heart nestled in it's centre. As part of Mise Éire 1916, the Shamrock represents Ireland and the right to our own Nation, the heart represents the fire of freedom that burned in the hearts of all who fought in the Easter Rising of 1916.
