“There was an herb called wood sorrel and it is said that there is a tradition connected with it. It was a sacred plant of the Druid before Saint Patrick came to Ireland. It is now called shamrock as Saint Patrick picked it at Tara and held it up as a symbol of the three Divine Persons.

Mary Kate Duffy, County Roscommon, The Schools’ Collection, 1930’s
