Some irish traditions

When you come to Ireland, one of the first things you notice might be the fact that street signs are written both in English and in another obscure, alien language. What you are seeing see is actually an instance of Gaelic, the original Irish language.
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about Ireland is the shamrock. The shamrock, which at first was only associated with St. Patrick, started to become a national symbol when it was first used as an emblem by voluntary Irish militias in the late 18th century. Even if, outside of Ireland at least, it is far less famous than the shamrock, the actual official emblem of Ireland has been, for several centuries, the Irish harp. In fact the actual colour of Ireland is not green but blue - have a look at the colour of the Constitution. It’s blue, and there’s also the harp.
The tricolor was most likely designed after the French flag, since the French revolution inspired the Irish national movement. Although the flag was made famous during the Easter rising in 1916, it was first flown by Thomas Meagher in 1848, who yearned for a new independent Ireland.
