The Perfect Irish Gift

Guest Author - Mary Ellen Sweeney

Well, at long last we think we’ve found just the right gift for every occasion. Hibernia Heritage is now offering the opportunity to have your own little piece of Ireland on the Hook Peninsula in County Wexford, in the southeast of the country. This really is a unique gift and comes with a specially designed Celtic Title Deed in Gaelic and English. The land itself is on the former Deer Park overlooking the entrance to Waterford harbor where Strongbow invaded Ireland, and coined the phrase “by hook or by crook.”

The area has numerous links with America including the birthplace of JFK’s great grandfather, the birthplace of John Barry, Father of the American navy, and just recently it was discovered that President Bush is a descendant of Strongbow. For the shopaholics, it’s also just a few miles from the famous Waterford crystal factory.

Your souvenir plot of land comprises one square link – an ancient measurement that is a little under a square foot – in the shadow of the Hook lighthouse, the oldest in Europe, and a stone’s throw from Ireland’s most haunted house, Loftus Hall. As a special bonus, you’ll get a little booklet with the legend of Loftus Hall along with your Title Deed.

There’s still time to order for Christmas and your Title Deed will be inscribed with the name of the Titleholder in Uncial---the lettering of St Patrick---before the seal of Hibernia Heritage is applied and it is signed by Breandán de Paor whose family have been custodians of the land since the nineteenth century.

To order your piece of Ireland, and collect a free Irish Song book, just click here.



And should you one day want to visit that bit of the old sod, here's a great contact to make the arrangements. Now THAT would really be a gift!
