Faith & Begorra

Founded in 1992, Susan Banks and her husband Dennis opened Faith & Begorra. Inspired by the mythology of the ancient Celts, Faith & Begorra sells handcrafted jewelry pieces that illustrate its history and legend through symbols and color.

"There is much folklore surrounding the Irish and Scottish people: The story of the Irish Claddagh and the Scottish Luckenbooth, the legend of the Celtic Dragon, Tree of Life, or Triple Goddess; our Celtic jewelry collections take these ancient stories and retell them in colorful, playful jewelry," explains Susan.

They also stock The Celtic Jewelry Studio, created by designer and owner Cynthia Meyers. "Traveling to Ireland and the Celtic Isles for many years I became familiar with the folklore and legends, the Celtic people, their history, and the wonderful mythology of the Celts. Being of Celtic blood myself it all struck a chord," says Cynthia.

You can shop Fath & Begorra on their website and you can also follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Fáilte Irish Imports

Fáilte Irish Import Shop has been providing a diverse selection of fine goods from Ireland and Scotland to the Central Kentucky area and beyond for 20 years. The owner of Liza Hendley Betz emigrated from Dublin, Ireland to America in 1996 and ended up falling in love with Kentucky.

Due to the huge emigration of Irish and Scottish to Kentucky, Liza noticed a great demand for Irish products, and Fáilte "The Irish Shop" was born in December 2001.

Fáilte has a huge choice of 'off-the-boat' Irish so you will find a wonderful assortment of foods. Everything for a fry up including Brennan's bread and black pudding. They can take care of your sweet tooth too with all their Cadbury chocolates and yummy biscuits. 

Liza extended her product range to fragrances, Irish flat caps, household goods, clothing, Belleek pottery, Celtic jewelry, and much much more. It's a gem of a shop. A few years ago they also started selling fancy coffee and a proper cup of Irish tea. So if you stop in you will more than likely be engaged in some chat!
