Irish shamrock: Wear a little piece of Ireland this St Patrick’s Day

Sponsored by Horkans

ST PATRICK'S DAY is the day when we come together to celebrate and share our rich Irish culture and heritage wherever we are in the world.

From Dublin to London to New York, streets across the world will be filled with revellers dressed in shamrock green, proudly parading their Irish roots.

So wherever you are in the world why not wear a little piece of Ireland this St Patrick’s Day?

The shamrock is firmly established as the most instantly recognisable emblem and is the treasured symbol of Ireland.

Horkans Irish Shamrock is the true species of Irish shamrock, Trifolium Dubium.

The shamrock is grown in a special hydrogel using no soil which removes the threat of contamination and makes it suitable for exporting to most parts of the world.

The shamrock comes with root intact, so you can plant it in your own garden or pot it up after you wear it on St Patrick's Day.

The gel gives the shamrock a shelf life of up to 14 days and it can then be stored once refrigerated for 6-8 weeks.

It is also the same shamrock that has been presented to all US presidents every St Patrick’s Day since Bill Clinton’s term.

Horkans are a family owned and run business, based in Co. Mayo in the west of Ireland. Mayo is also home to Croagh Patrick, St. Patrick's holy mountain.

It was there the people of Ireland gathered to fast and pray after hearing about the death of St. Patrick. To this day, many people make the same pilgrimage to the top of Croagh Patrick, over a thousand years after his death.
