When my husband and I married I didn't want a diamond or a band sparkling with adornments- all I wanted was a simple Claddagh. The symbolism of friendship, love and loyalty meant more to me and my hope for our marriage than any shiny stone. Our girls ask often about our matching bands- so do strangers!- and we love to tell the story of the Claddagh.
Claddagh: The Tale of the Ring tells the story of the first Claddagh ring created by Richard Joyce. Written for elementary age children, the story is engaging enough to intrigue an adult and the images will keep younger children interested, as well.
Claddagh: The Tale of the Ring is available online for $11USD.
Galway City, the Claddagh and the legend of the Claddagh Ring are vividly brought to life through the book’s wonderfully-told story and striking illustrations.
