In Carlingford Mu Lay and Phaw Shee Taw learned about Claddagh rings.

We bought some Claddagh rings in the village. They are traditional Irish weddings rings.

The ring has two hands holding a heart with a crown on top. The hands mean friendship. The heart means love and the crown means loyalty.

When you are single you wear the ring on your hand with the heart facing out.

When you are engaged you wear the ring on the left hand with the heart facing out. Finally when you marry you wear the ring on the left hand with the heart facing in.
