Full Description

A beautiful St. Brigid’s Cross. Handmade from 5,000 year old black turf from Ireland’s deepest ancient boglands. This cross is a traditional housewarming gift.

The turf for this gift is sustainably sourced from some of Ireland’s oldest boglands formed from partially decomposed vegetation, which has accumulated in waterlogged places for over five thousand years. The wet turf bog is fused using glue to create the cross shape, then dried in a kiln and processed for any extra carving into a beautiful Celtic Gift.

Ready to hang by a metal hook on the back.

Approx dimensions: 6″ x 6″

Colour: Black. Please allow for screen resolution and colour differences.

The St. Brigid’s Cross has a strong tradition in Irish culture and folklore. This Irish Cross represents St. Brigid, who is Ireland’s 2nd patron saint. Traditionally the St. Brigid’s Cross is hung in homes to protect from fire and evil.

Presented in an Island Turf Crafts box. The following note is included with this piece:

Island Turf Crafts

5000 years ago the Great Elk wandered through the forests and boglands. It was a land of sweeping mists and gentle rain and soft sunlight. A land of pagan carvings and mysterious rituals. A land where the soothing lilt of the harp drifted over cool, clear crystal lakes and rivers.

Capturing the very essence of that era, each one of these sculptures has its own story to tell which is as old as the bog itself.

This Irish Gift is ideal for:

  • New Home (the St. Brigid’s Cross is an Irish Traditional Housewarming Gift)
  • Engagement Gifts
  • St. Patrick’s Day Gifts
  • Christmas Gifts
  • Birthdays Gifts
  • Father’s Day Gifts
  • Mother’s Day Gifts
  • St. Brigid’s Day Gifts (2nd February)
  • Sympathy Gifts

    Totally Irish Gifts were excellent. They confirmed my order of the St. Brigid Turf Cross immediately, advised when shipped and voila, it arrived in excellent condition thanks to the careful and secure packaging. It is exactly as described. Thank you so much. When I return home from holiday in Ireland this will make an excellent house-warming gift for my grandson at his new digs in Ottawa Ontario Canada.
