Customer Lee said this lovely welcoming plaque was a present and the intended "loved it!" They were very happy with the quality and the fact that is was made in Kinsale, Co. Cork, Ireland. There is a certain pride in supporting Irish artisans when so many items are manufactured in China these days. This piece is designed and then poured into a mold so the artist's vision could be recreated without fail. This Irish sign reads "Cead Mile Failte" which means 100,000 times welcome - it's a traditional Irish greeting that is meant to help everyone feel at home when they visit Ireland. The Cead Mile Failte sign makes a great gift. You won't find this with any other supplier. We are proud to work with the artisans at our maker-partner in Kinsale, Co. Cork who produces heartfelt, handmade Irish gifts and Celtic crafts and support their traditional crafts that pay homage to the Irish culture. When you purchase from Biddy Murphy, you are supporting a small business that is dedicated to preserving and promoting the artisans in Ireland.
