Considered a symbol of luck in Ireland, the Shamrock emblem is synonymous worldwide with our country after becoming popularised by nationalists in the 19th century. This iconic little plant was hugely significant in helping St.Patrick convert the country to Christianity over 1,000 years ago, and the native Irish pagans used its three leaves as a metaphor to represent the Holy trinity. In the 21st Century the Shamrock has undeniably become the most internationally recognised symbol of Irishness.
