Description: THE SHAMROCK
A symbol for Christianity, rebellion, and magic.
Irish word for clover is "seamróg" pronounced "Seamroy", meaning "little clover".
The ancient druids considered the clover a sacred plant. That it had the power to keep evil spirits away. Some people believe the Shamrock to have mystical and/or prophetic powers.
The ancient Irish Celtics revered the Shamrock as it has three (3) leaves and to them the number three (3) is sacred. The Ancient Celtic Druids believed the Shamrock to have mystical powers. The Celtic tradition of honoring and revering the Shamrock has continued to this day.
The Shamrock has heart shaped leaves and are associated with the Triple Goddess of
Celtic mythology. The Triple Goddess represents the Three Mothers, the Hearts of Ancient Celtic Tribes.
Great things do come in threes...

• faith, hope and charity
The Irish bards continue revering the belief of the number three being sacred as in all their story telling rhythms they repeating them three (3) times in their renditions.
