Guinness is an iconic beer brand that is certainly worthy of celebrating, and its monumental history began on December 31st, 1759. That was the day that Guinness beer founder, Arthur Guinness, signed a jaw-dropping 9,000-year lease at St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, Ireland. This brewery is where Guinness beer is still made to this day. Distinguished by its stately black entrance gate that bears the Guinness name and harp logo in radiant gold lettering, the antique-style light posts that flank the gate, and the weathered brick road leading to the gate, St. James’s Gate Brewery is a popular historic landmark in Ireland that countless numbers of tourists visit today. Though the Irish harp is a signature part of the famous Guinness logo, the Irish harp actually predates the emergence of Guinness and is a special part of Irish history and culture. As a proud Irish symbol, the harp is featured on many relics of the Emerald Isle, such as coins and flag emblems, but its origins can be followed way back to ancient Celtic civilization when it was used to accompany the performance of songs and the reciting of poetry.
For women who want to wear their good luck charms, shirts that beautifully display the shamrock flower are the perfect fit. Take for example our gorgeous White Sequin Shamrock Ladies V-Neck T-shirt. The shamrock has tremendous significance to the Emerald Isle. It is the national flower of Ireland, and it’s a well-known symbol of good luck, especially the Luck O’ the Irish. Saint Patrick, one of Ireland’s famous patron saints, used the flower’s three heart-shaped leaves to teach the Holy Trinity of Christianity to Irish converts.
Traditional Celtic T-Shirts
For a t-shirt that celebrates a woman’s Celtic roots, Ireland the Emerald Isle T-Shirt in Brown is a great piece to add to her wardrobe. The shirt features a prominent rendering of the Celtic Cross in brown, and inside of the four loops of the cross are symbols of the four flags of the traditional Irish provinces: Connacht, Munster, Ulster, and Leinster. The halo of the cross was believed to originally be a wheel and the cross itself a thunderbolt, which were the two objects Taranis would hold in his hands in ancient illustrations. Ancient Celts also used the cross’s four limbs to signify Divine, self, wisdom, and nature, the four arms of deeper spiritual knowledge, with the halo representing unification and wholeness. They also used the four limbs to symbolize the four cardinal directions of north, south, east, and west. Over time, the cross became associated with Christianity.
