The Tara Brooch is one of the most important remaining artifacts from the early Christian era in Ireland.
It was created about 700 A.D. and is decorated with intertwined or knotwork designs.
The design and techniques used in the creation of this brooch show the advanced state of jewellery making in Ireland in this period.
The Tara Brooch was most likely made for a wealthy person,a male who wished to show off his high status in life.
This national treasure was found on a beach near Bettystown Co. Meath in August 1850.
The title of "Tara brooch" was soon attached to this artifact to raise its status, as this brooch was thought to be fit for a king to wear and the nearby hill of Tara was the ancient seat of the high kings of Ireland.
This Brooch design is sculpted and coldcast in brass by Colm Mc Cann to celebrate this beautiful irish treasure.
The design is then mounted onto a slate plaque 125mm x 125mm in size.
This plaque makes a lovely gift for anyone who has irish ancestry.
