Unusual Irish Gifts

Our Irish gifts from The Burren in Clare are truly unique and unusual - perfect mementos of this starkly beautiful place. These Burren stones bear the marks of aeons of natural forces.

Of course, not everybody appreciates the beauty of The Burren.

In 1651, Edmund Ludlow, one of Cromwell's generals took a rather utilitarian view of it:
Poulnabrone Dolmen, Burren
Poulnabrone Dolmen
After two days march, without anything remarkable but bad quarters, we entered into the barony of Burren, of which it is said, that it is a country where there is not water enough to drown a man, wood enough to hang one, nor earth enough to bury him.             
Edmund Ludlow, 1651
