The Symbols of Ireland
I’m afraid you won’t find any dancing leprechauns, pots of gold, or green beer on this list of symbols of Ireland… it’s not St Paddy’s Day and we’re not in a sports bar that calls itself an Irish pub.
In honor of symbols day for #FriFotos on Twitter (a weekly, themed photo sharing event), I thought I’d list a few symbols of Ireland…
The High Cross
Donaghmore High Cross, Co Tyrone
This crop of shamrocks come from Annes Grove Gardens, Co Cork

Ireland is the only country to use a musical instrument as its national symbol – here’s an image from a piece of our jewelry
The Round Tower
Timahoe Round Tower, Co Laois
Wolfhounds at Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, Co Clare
