PHOTO IS EXAMPLE OF A TRIPLE OGHAM _ NOT THE GRA GO DEO
In the misty past of Ireland, the first alphabet developed was called Ogham. It was a system of slash marks crossing a center line, usually on a wide tree branch and later on stone plinths.
The tilt and number of slash marks indicated the letter. The beauty of the system was that the branch could be carried – like a letter – or left in one spot to provide a message
Used by the Druids and other early Celts, Ogham faded from use when the Roman alphabet was introduced.
Today, Ogham is experiencing a resurgence of interest. Ethel Kelly not only creates elegant calligraphy Ogham, but hand-makes the paper it is written on before framing.
These have been extremely popular with our customers since they are usually just one word such as love, courage, joy, music and welcome. In a short or long format, they make appreciated gifts for your friends, the bride and groom, or your own home.
