IRELAND : THE CLADDAGH


The Claddagh was once a fishing village located just outside the walls of Galway city where the Corrib River meets Galway Bay. Because it was so convenient to railway and hotels, and yet quite different to Galway itself, the Claddagh attracted many visitors --including writers, who spread its fame-- during the 19th century. Irish-speaking into the 20th century, the village was replaced by a council-housing scheme in the 1930s.

In recent years, the city has expanded considerably, so the Claddagh is considered to be part of the city centre.

The Claddagh is famous for the Claddagh ring a friendship ring.

When the Claddagh crown is facing outward on the left hand, it says that your heart is truly spoken for. When the crown faces outward on the right hand, it says that you're considering love.
