Books to Remind You of Ireland
If you’re curious about what Irish people and scenes from 100 years or so ago might have looked like in color, then purchasing any one or more of the fascinating coffee table book series titled, “Old Ireland in Colour” will definitely satisfy that curiosity.
The contents of the three books have been carefully colorized by the book’s co-authors, Professor John Breslin and Dr. Sarah-Anne Buckley, both of NUI Galway, who created a fascinating look into the Ireland of old.
Sean Fitzgerald Celtic Knot Designs
Are you interested in Celtic designs that are inspired by nature, folklore, and mythology?
If so, you’ll find Sean Fitzgerald’s artwork fascinating.
The artist, based in County Donegal, is a master at creating intricate designs depicting pagan Ireland.
Fitzgerald says he was raised on stories of Irish mythology, including those of Cú Chulainn, Fionn mac Cumhaill (Fionn McCool), and the Fianna, “which were just as exciting as Hollywood movies to me,” he says.
When he left school, he began building traditional Irish currachs, studying ancient marine culture, and later started illustrating Celtic knotwork.
You can find his beautiful posters, prints, books and jewelry on his website.
The Aran Sweater
Did you know that the Aran sweater is named after the Aran Islands off the County Galway coast?
Also known as the fisherman’s sweater, the clothing has become a major fashion statement of Irish culture and Irishness in general.
The sweater and other similar accessories make for a wonderful holiday gift for your mom, sister, cousin or aunt.
Irish Wool Gifts
The Blarney Woollen Mills in County Cork is well known but so is the Foxford Woollen Factory in County Mayo, where for decades, fine Irish wool products have been woven, including the company's traditional blankets.
These days, you'll find a lot more than blankets at these woolen stores and others across Ireland. Popular wool gifts on The Irish Store website include men's caps, scarves for both men and women, sweaters, children's clothing, and more.
Give the Elegant Gift of Irish China
Belleek China is one of Ireland’s most successful pottery companies and graces the homes of many Irish residents and lovers of Ireland abroad.
The company based in Belleek, County Fermanagh, makes everything from tea sets to vases, figurines and larger sculptures.
Why not give the gift of Belleek China to someone you care about and who wants to be reminded of Ireland?
Shop for Belleek China on the Irish Store website.
A Watercolor Print of Ireland
Giving someone the gift of Ireland through a watercolor print is a thoughtful holiday gesture.
You'll find sketches of popular attractions like The Cliffs of Moher, traditional Irish cottages, castles, round towers, maps and more on Etsy, the popular online marketplace for unique, one-of-a-kind items.
The Claddagh ring is just one of the iconic pieces of Irish jewelry that makes for a great Irish-themed holiday gift.
Did you know that the hands on the iconic piece of jewelry signify friendship, that the crown signifies loyalty, and that the heart signifies love?
The ring first made its appearance on this side of the Atlantic in the 19th century when emigration from Ireland was at its highest. The Celtic Knot Jewelry Company has an array of beautiful jewelry to choose from for both women and men.
