Here in Ireland a popular legend is that the Celtic cross was introduced by Saint Patrick or maybe the lesser known Saint Declan when converting the pagan population though no examples from that early period have been found. It is said that Saint Patrick combined the symbol of Christianity, the cross with the sun cross to show the new Christian converts the importance of the cross by linking it with the life giving properties of the sun. Art historians now think this theory is most unlikely . Historians now think its origin is from crosses carrying a victor’s wreath around their intersection. Such a cross is found on the back of the Liudhard medalet from Canterbury England dated around 590 AD.

As with all our house signs and house plaques, we produce using only Irish limestone mostly from counties Kilkenny, Roscommon, Galway or from the Burren. All 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 Irish limestone is supplied by God and nature and worked by man.
