The label on back of tile reads...
The true meaning behind Celtic designs & legends is lost in the mists of history, little real documentary evidence exists today. Whatever the thoughts in the minds of those artists long ago we encourage you to enjoy their beauty and dream your own thoughts.
“The Claddagh” design is one of Ireland's unique treasures. Although it’s origin is steeped in legend it traditionally symbolizes Friendship (the hands), Love (the heart) and Loyalty (the crown).
Over 300 years ago in a fishing village called Claddagh overlooking Galway Bay, lived Richard Joyce a master goldsmith. It was he who crafted this famous ring design which has come to denote pride in Irish heritage, while continuing to be a symbol of friendship, love and marriage.
