As a newlywed couple begins their life's journey together, we wish three things for them—health (sláinte), love (grá), and happiness (sonas) together. This simple yet powerful original work of art, individually handpainted on handmade paper by well-known Irish artist Ethel Kelly, expresses those three wishes in Ogham script, Ireland's ancient alphabet. A meaningful gift for the newly married—or anyone you love.
