This really is the Emerald Isle
Submitted by bugsly on Friday, January 27, 2006 - 13:25 Car | Core | Ireland | Walk

Ireland really is gorgeously green (my favorite)! Today we took the idyllic route through the countryside from Limerick to Galway. On the way we stopped for a meal at the Weavers Rest in Loughrea, a small town on the way.

Upon reaching Galway we set out in search of Claddagh shop and a fisherman’s sweater. A Claddagh (I assumed that you were wondering) is a ring that has a heart being held by two hands and wearing a crown, this symbolizes the reign on love and friendship. It is customary for an unmarried woman to wear the crown side facing her heart and when she marries she turns it around, for instance I wear mine with the crown facing me where as my mom wears it away from her.

You may also be wondering what a fisherman knit sweater is, it is a sweater knitted by the wives of the fishermen very thickly. The natural oil from the sheep’s wool is waterproof, making the sweaters perfect for fishing days. Each different family had a different design, for instance they may have two cables with a honeycomb pattern in the middle or something like that.
