The Irish are the friendliest people in the world and there is no better way to show it than with a bronze plaque adorned with the word Failte which means "welcome." (Pronounced: FALL Sha.) Using letters designed by Tom Little, studio designer Adam Grabski made this original carving as a companion piece to the Slainte wall hanging.
