"As I kiss your hand
   My heart is unsure
   Yet I dare to hope
   So I court you
As we walk hand in hand
   You turn my heart round
   Then I turn to you
   And kiss you
As we stand, clasping hands
   So you hold my heart
   And I love you
  Forever, I love you"
  - Him

As we stand, clasping hands
   So you hold my heart
   And I love you
   Forever, I love you"

Coolattin Poets Society
for Royal Claddagh

A unique collection of new Claddagh poetry specially commissioned by Royal Claddagh, Ireland, to celebrate the Royal Claddagh ring and its centuries of tradition in words and song.

  The Coolattin Poets Society was created to produce a new kind of verse. Following in the original Celtic traditions of the spoken word, these poets have created poetry that is alive, poetry that speaks directly to the listener. These verses are written in Coolattin, have all been recorded in the local village of Shillelagh, and are recited by the authors themselves. The resulting poetry is lyrical and recorded with haunting Celtic background music.
