The symbols and stories of Ireland are forever linked to the Celtic culture, which became dominant here around 500 BC. Symbols and signs held deep meaning and had huge power for the ancient Celts. Ireland's rich history and culture has cherished stories and storytelling for thousands of years, and these symbols speak of incredible tales of love and devotion, of saint and scholars, myths and legends. Some of these have become obscured in the mists of time, but all these beautiful Irish tales continue to be told in Ireland up to present day.

The Irish have always loved a good story, and the art of storytelling has been celebrated for thousands and thousands of years in Ireland. In ancient Ireland stories about the Tree of Life, and the Trinity Knot helped us make sense of the world, nature and our place in it. In early Christian Ireland, the Shamrock famously helped St Patrick to explain the mysteries of Christianity to pagan Ireland, while the Celtic Crosses which still dot the Irish countryside today, helped early Christian educators to explain the new faith.
