This St Patrick's Day, shop green and local with these independent Irish stores.

Local Irish and Celtic shops represent the heartbeat of Irish culture in their communities, and in the USA is a place for Irish Americans to connect with their roots and for those in the larger community to learn more about everything Ireland has to offer.

Here are four Irish stores celebrating March with special Irish and St. Patrick's Day inspired pieces from jewelry to clothing. 

Connemara Marble

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the brand new Connemara Marble Pendant. A 100% Irish made, this handcrafted pendant features the iconic Shamrock with marcasite gemstones for extra sparkle. The combination of natural, treatment free Connemara Marble with marcasite is exquisite and the placement of the marcasite stones highlights the 40 shades of green within the striations of the natural marble.

Inspired by the lush landscape, vibrant culture and fascinating folklore of Ireland, this pendant will capture your heart and imagination with its contemporary design steeped in tradition.

Saint Patrick, Ireland's patron saint, is said to have used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity when he converted the Irish to Christianity in 432 AD. He used the three leaves to explain the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. So with Saint Patrick’s Day just around the corner what better way to celebrate your love of all things Irish than with this true piece of Ireland? Connemara Marble is only found here in the West of Ireland. and no two pieces are the same, with each piece being as unique as a fingerprint.
