Rebirth of a Nation 1916

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 comes with an added addition of a silver shamrock and gold plated smaller shamrock nestled in the centre. As part of Mise Éire 1916, the Shamrock represents Ireland and the right to our own Nation. The golden shamrock in its' centre, represents the rebirth of a Nation after the Easter Rising of 1916.
