An Bradan Feasa (The Salmon of Knowledge) and Ta an Bradan ar ais (The Salmon Returns), by Ray Flaherty.
The King of the waterways is the Salmon of Knowledge. Graced with wisdom, courage and strength, this mythological creature represents life force, or soul. He is the Salmon of knowledge; Bradan Feasa, and he brings healing and magic to the lives of all who witness his treacherous journey toward his place of re-birth.
Ta an Bradan ar ais is hand-carved in Connemara Marble.
Two pieces of stone-art depicting Bradan Feasa will be on display at Katie’s Cottage until 31st March, alongside Talamh Na N-iasc, by Mike Walsh.
Katie’s Cottage Museum is a restored authentic Cladach (‘the shaley shore’) traditional dwelling, art and heritage centre in the heart of The Claddagh, a former fishing village dating back to the 5th century.
Both a hub of artisan activity, as well as a chance to experience traditional Claddagh community life as it was during the 17th - 20th century, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
