History of the Shamrock
The name derives from seamróg meaning 'young clover'. Since the 18th century it has been used as an official symbol of Irish heritage, becoming incorporated into numerous local flags, coats of arms, and sports emblems. It is now a yearly St Patrick's Day tradition for the Irish taoiseach (prime minister) to present the President of the United States with a crystal bowl of shamrocks in the White House, as a celebration of Ireland's deep connection to the United States due to the Irish diaspora.
I received the pocket watch for my husband yesterday. It was as lovely as I thought it would be. It looks like a pocket watch my grandfather in Galway had many years ago. Thank ye it is a lovely time piece
