Description
 
Sterling Silver Large Children of Lir Brooch With Gift Box - Max Height 32mm, Max Width 32mm

King Lir had four children, Fionnuala, Aodh, Fiachra and Con. Their mother the Queen had died and the King married Aoife. Aoife cast a spell over the children turning them into swans. This spell was to last 900 years, they were to spend 300 on their own lake, 300 years on the Sea of Moyle and 300 years on the Isle of Glora. Only the sound of a church bell would break the spell. The King saw what Aoife had done and banished her from his kingdom.

After 900 years had passed the swans heard the sound of a church bell. Caomhog stood outside his church and listened to their sad story in astonishment. The Holy water he sprindled on then turned them into an old woman and three old men. That night Caomhog dreamed of four swans flying up through the clouds and he knew the children of Lir were at last on their way to heaven to be with their Mother and Father again.
