The Fionán Pendant is inspired by the beautiful decorated Cross Slab at Kilfountain, on the Dingle Peninsula. The slab is inscribed with the ancient Ogham Alphabet.
The name Ogham is derived from Oghma, the Celtic God of elocution or fine speech. Ogham is an ancient linear script and is the first known written language of Ireland. The Ogham alphabet consists of groups of lines from one to five, set across a vertical stem-line. Each group represents a different letter. It was used mainly for commemorative inscriptions.
A Celtic original by Brian de Staic with an Ogham inscription makes a special gift personal.
Our handcrafted pendants can be engraved on the back with your name, in the original Ogham script.This unique piece comes with an 18 inch chain and a leaflet to explain the history of the Ogham script.
