Tom & Tess - Claddagh Swan
Beautiful work by a local artist.
1. SPANISH ARCH
The Spanish Arch was built in 1584 but is an extension of the 12th century Norman-built town wall. I housed soldiers who kept watch and manned cannons on the roof. It became known as the Spanish Arch in medieval times as Spanish galleons selling wine and spice often docked there.
2. THE LONG WALK
The Spenish Arch leads to a row of houses built in the 1880’s called the Long Walk.
3, THE CLADDAGH RING
The Claddagh ring is a traditional Irish ring which represents love, loyalty and friendship. It originated in the Claddagh village in the 1700’s.
4. THE CLADDAGH SWANS
The Claddagh has one of the largest swan populations in Europe.
