Irish Harp HARP: Based on the ancient lyre, the Irish harp is one of the world's oldest instruments. The ancient Irish kings employed harpist to entertain them. At one sad point in Irish history conquering invaders made it illegal to posses an Irish harp and set out to burn every harp in Ireland in an attempt to kill the "Irish spirit". Greatly honored, the harp is the national emblem of Ireland.
Irish Pot of Gold POT OF GOLD: Everyone is always looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Trouble is, the rainbow doesn't have an end!
Shamrock SHAMROCK: Three signified totality: past, present and future / behind, before and here / sky, earth and underworld. Three is Ireland's magic number. Hence the Shamrock. In reality, a "white clover" but in the mind, a lucky Irish good luck charm...

I am the wind that breathes upon the sea,
I am the wave on the ocean,
I am the murmur of leaves rustling,
I am the rays of the sun,
I am the beam of the moon and stars,
I am the power of trees growing'
I am the bud breaking into blossom,
I am the movement of salmon swimming,
I am the courage of the wild board fighting,
I am the speed of the stag running,
I am the strength of the ox pulling the plow,
I am the size of the mighty oak tree'
And I am the thoughts of all people
Who praise my beauty and grace.
