Hi Everyone. I hope I find you all well. I’m excited this week to present my top Irish Ogham gifts. Ogham writing is Ireland’s earliest form of writing and can still be found on many ancient standing stones throughout various rural parts of Ireland. The script itself consists of a series of strokes and its beauty lies in its simplicity.
It also gives me great pleasure to introduce you to the artist Ethel Kelly in the video below. Ethel creates the award winning Ogham prints which we are very proud to offer at The Irish Store. Here, Ethel tells us the story behind the ancient manuscript of Ireland and how her prints are exquisitely created. These gifts are truly unique, authentically Irish and an undeniable connection to our ancient past.
