– Just so there is no confusion, the national symbol of Ireland is the Harp, not the shamrock. The Shamrock is the national flower of Ireland.
– it was the Celtic druids who started the shamrock on its path into Irish history, not St Patrick! The shamrock was originally associated with the Celtic goddess Ana or Anu. 3 was known as “the perfect number”. It didn’t stop there. Celtic society was organised around the sacred three, with three classes, three colours, and three principal gods representing the 3 seasons. Yes they had only 2 seasons and the inbetween season. Even their laws were made in 3’s.
– The word shamrock comes from the Old Irish “seamróg”, which can be translated as “little clover”. The Irish word for clover is “seamair”, and óg means “young” or “little”. The three leaves of a shamrock are also said to stand for faith, hope and love.
– A fourth leaf is where we get the luck from, not a shamrock which is 3 leafed.
