When St. Patrick met the ancient Celts, it is said he needed a way to explain the Holy Trinity to them in a way they would understand. Legend has it that he found a way to do this by using the 3 leafed Irish Shamrock, with a leaf for the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. While this meaning still holds true today, we also associate this quintessentially Irish symbol with good luck! This brightly colored bone china mug features a Shamrock symbol painted in the style found on 9th century Celtic manuscripts that were painted by Celtic Monks.
