The Tara Brooch is justifiably one of the most celebrated works of art. 

Once you see it, it will take you by heart. 

Dating back to the early eight century, the ‘golden age’ of Celtic history.

This Brooch is made of gold, silver, copper, amber and coloured glass. 

It was mostly used of indicating upper class. 

Although this brooch Is quite small it is used for holding up one’s shawl.

The Tara brooch is made lots of techniques mostly interlace, 

this make’s is impossible to replace.

The Tara Brooch was found in co. Meath near the seashore. 

Just lying there waiting for someone to adore. 

Now it is in a Museum of Celtic history, where lots of people from all over the world come to see.
