“No one will get near him again, no one will drag from him that troth which he has been keeping for the right woman and which even in his cretiny he had once believed Angie to be, had settled on the ring he would buy, the Claddagh ring, with two hands plaited on a golden mount, the symbol of two plaited natures. O lost enchantments.”

Edna O’Brien, “Down by the River“, Plume, 1998.
