Legend has it that the Claddagh symbol was first used by Richard Joyce, a Galway seafarer who was kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery in North Africa. There he learned the art of goldsmithing. When he was released, nothing could keep him from his beloved city of Galway. There he returned to become a master goldsmith and creator of the the Claddagh ring. For centuries the Claddagh ring has been used as a wedding ring by the fisher community of Claddagh village, which is nestled right outside the walls of Galway in the west of Ireland.
