Wall Clocks Featuring Ireland's Stunning Landscapes.

Ireland is known for it's stunning landscapes and impressive coastlines. In fact it was the poet William Drennan who first coined the term 'Emerald Isle', referring to the country's vast swathes of lush green countryside and unrivaled charm. 

The two wall clocks illustrated beneath offer a glimpse of Ireland's natural beauty; the majestic Killarney mountains and the rugged Irish coast. What better reminder of home?

The clocks are available in three sizes, and these beautiful images can be found on round wall clocks, too. 

Vintage Saint Patrick's Day Wall Clocks.

The Irish folk song entitled the Wearing of the Green dates back to the Irish Rebellion of 1798, when daring to wear green clothing, or even a shamrock, was seen as an act of rebellion and was punishable by death.

Over the years, shamrocks and all things green have become associated with St Patrick's Day, irrespective of the fact that St Patrick's colour was originally that of blue.

The vintage Angel Saint Patrick wall clock depicts a delightful image of Ireland's Patron Saint collecting shamrocks.  Whilst the dainty little maiden clad in green represents the resilience and enduring spirit of the Irish people.

Irish Flag Wall Clocks for St. Patty's Day.

The Irish tricolour represents more than just a nation, the message behind the three colours represents the countries aspirations for peace, unity and understanding. Orange represents the followers of William 111, the Prince of Orange, and green represents the traditional native Gaelics. The white centre of the flag symbolises the ambitions for peace between the two. A beautiful message for St Patrick's Day.

Hi Katie,

My absolute favourite is the vintage wearing of the green, the little girl dancing on the chair. I absolutely love it. :)
