Love of Ireland - Grá na hÉireann
As part of Mise Éire 1916, the Shamrock represents Ireland and the right to our own Nation. The wee golden heart in its' centre, represents the love and the fire of freedom that burned in the hearts of all who fought in the Easter Rising of 1916.
The wee shamrock is a classic Irish icon, which is recognised the world over. Many view it as a symbol of luck, something the Irish have always been credited for!
St. Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint, used the Shamrock to explain the mystery of the Holy Trinity to the native Irish, back in the 5th century. Its' three leaves represent Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, three deities in one.
This sterling silver shamrock comes complete with a 14ct gold heart nestled in the centre, hung on an 18" sterling silver chain.
