Bestselling author Malachy McCourt recounts the story of Ireland’s timeless symbol of loyalty, friendship, and love, a ring design of two clasped hands that is worn by millions worldwide. Following the success of his Running Press titles Danny Boy and Voices of Ireland, McCourt explores this beloved icon of Irish heritage through vivid anecdotes, charming folk tales, and recent documented incidents. Said to have been first crafted more than 400 years ago in a fishing village on Galway Bay, there is much more to the story of the Claddagh ring than simple popular history, and McCourt tracks it down and recounts it with his stellar storytelling finesse.

About the Author

Malachy McCourt was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1931, but grew up in Limerick, Ireland. He returned to the United States at the age of twenty where he says he “did a bit of dishwashing, long-shoring, military service, bartending, stage acting, and saloon owning.” His greatest achievement of all is his fifty-one-year marriage to his wife, Diana, who has blessed him with five children and eight grandchildren.
