Irish Dance Brooches
The Irish’s love for Celtic and Irish brooches is all rooted in the Tara Brooch which is the epitome of the ancient Celtic’s fascination for metalwork masterpieces. According to Irish folklore, the Tara Brooch originated from the Hill of Tara, the Irish High King’s seat. This brooch is highly-valued and is said to be one of Irish history’s greatest treasures. Aside from being highly valued for its origin, the Tara brooch is actually also well-known for its intricate design and great craftsmanship. This holds Irish pride – a reason why Irish dancers wear brooches when they dance.
