About this Piece

The Children of Lir is an Irish legend that tells the tragic story of Aedh, Fichara, Conn & Fionnuala, the four children of the ancient Irish lord Lir. After the death of their mother, the children are cursed by their jealous stepmother to take the shape of swans. For hundreds of years they endure the savagery of nature until, one day, the curse expires. The children once more assume human form and are baptised by a priest, before ascending to their mother's side in Heaven.

The tale of The Children of Lir has come to symbolize the struggle of the Irish nation under British rule. A statue depicting the ancient legend stands in Dublin's Garden of Remembrance, celebrating the achievement of Irish independence.

Mary McAleese, President of the Irish Republic from 1997 - 2011, wore a Children of Lir brooch by Aidan Breen on her inauguration in 1997

Really beautiful item, and truly excellent customer service. We messaged Peter to highlight how important the jewellery we ordered was, (it was for a special birthday present for our daughter). Peter and his staff we very, very helpful and dispatched the Jewelry the same day - and we received it safely the following day in the UK! Highly recommend My Irish Jeweler.
