Ireland Clock = Irish Times: by the artist, Philip Gafney, O’Gowna Studios, Co. Dublin, Ireland.
The Irish over time have had a disproportionate effect on the world from this tiny island on the edge of the Atlantic. Many great adventures have started here, from Brendan on his voyage to discover America, to Patrick who came here to discover himself. This island’s unique shape is like an old friend with outstretched arms calling you home or the family member waving you goodbye as you leave for the next part of your adventure.
Whether you are coming to Ireland or leaving from it, the hands on the clock keep moving, sometimes faster than we would like or slower than we want, until our next visit to home or the place we most feel at home, Ireland. Take this unique piece of Ireland home with you wherever you travel and set the time to Irish time as you remember fondly what you were doing at this time in Ireland.
