Blog Introduction

So long, in fact, that we like to consider ourselves the home of The Claddagh Ring. When we are not selling Claddagh rings, I like to get out and about around our beautiful country exploring some of our roads less traveled. With the pervasive influence of TV, The Internet, global brands and social media, it appears that the rich character of Ireland and its people is being eroded. People are too distracted or uninterested to appreciate the wealth of their surroundings. Sometimes the most interesting of stories are sitting right in front of us waiting to be told.

Over the coming months, we plan to post a series of blog posts featuring the ‘Forgotten Ireland’; places that were significant in the past and largely ignored or forgotten by today’s Ireland.
