The Shamrock

Anyone who sees this three-leafed shrub immediately associates it with Ireland. The shamrock is a three-leafed clover that can be found in abundance throughout Ireland. Some believe that St. Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint, used the shamrock to preach Christianity in Ireland since the plant’s three leaves represent the Holy Trinity. Others claim that in Celtic culture, the shamrock and the number three were regarded magical, and hence this plant was thought to bring good luck.
