The Pipes, the Pipes Are Calling Pendant
This double-sided pendant features an image from a vintage St Patrick’s Day postcard. The card displays a woman with an Irish clay pipe. The other side of the charm shows the lyrics “The Pipes, the Pipes Are Calling.”
Clay pipes were common in Ireland and the village of Knockcroghery in Co.Roscommon continues to make traditional pipes called “dúidíns.”
“The Pipes, the Pipes Are Calling” come from the song “Danny Boy,” written by English lawyer and lyricist Frederic Weatherly in 1910. The words were originally written for a different tune, but Weatherly modified them to fit the tune “Londonderry Air” in 1913.
This piece measures just over 1″ x 1″. Because of the handmade nature of this item, expect some variation. Neckwire not included.
