Celtic hounds were dogs that were highly respected by royalty and warriors. Given as gifts to men of honour and many warriors. Celtic hounds are said to be either greyhounds, the Scottish deerhound, the Irish wolfhound or a mix of all breeds.

The most famous Irish myth of hounds:
Culann the blacksmith invites the King, Conchobar, to his home for a feast. Before leaving for the feast the king goes to the playing fields to watch the boys playing hurling. The performance by one boy Setana is so impressive the kings asks him to join him at the feast. The boy agrees to follow after he has finished his game of hurling. Conchobar forgets about the boy and Culann lets loose his ferocious hound to protect his house. When the young boy Setanta arrives, the huge hound attacks him, he kills it in self defence with his hurley. Culann is devastated by the loss of his great hound, so Setanta promises he will replace the dog until he can breed a replacement and he himself guards Culann's home. From then on Setanta became known as Culann's hound.

All of our house signs and plaques are produced using only Irish limestone mostly from Kilkenny, Roscommon, Galway or the Burren. All of our pieces are unique because of the millions of years they have taken to form. When looking at the stone you will be amazed to see the small sea creatures in fossil form whose shells formed the limestone over countless millions of years. Thanks to those tiny creatures, your house plaque holds a slice of time millions of years old making this house plaque unique and an interesting addition to your home or an interesting and unusual present for a loved one. All our limestone is supplied by God and nature and worked by man.
