First Irish Republican Queen
The time has come to elect a Queen of the Claddagh on International Women's Day . I propose Marian Price as our first Irish Republican Queen, who represents love, loyalty and honour. Who does not permit the perversion of the course of justice allowing Royal Prerogatives to be shredded by minions that usurp or pervert the law, with theft, wanton destruction and kidnap.

The time has come to elect a Queen of the Claddagh on International Women's Day . I propose Marian Price as our first Irish Republican Queen, who represents love, loyalty and honour.

Up to the early 20th centuries, the Claddagh was a distinctive Irish speaking community, just west of the Corrib river, beside Galway City, with its own king. He led the fishing fleet and made the big decisions for one year. The King of the Claddagh sailed a Galway hooker, with a distinct white sail, as opposed to the usual maroon, settling disputes between the locals and the fishermen. He was elected annually, enforcing local bye-laws, settling disputes, his power being absolute among the fishermen.

The Claddagh ring or fáinne Chladaigh, is an Irish ring which represents love, honour and friendship. The hands representing friendship, the heart representing love and the crown representing loyalty to the Claddagh soveriegn. The design and customs associated with the ring, originate in the Irish fishing village of Claddagh. The ring as we know in today's form was first created in the 17th century. The "Fenian" Claddagh ring, without a crown, is a slightly different version on the design. Claddagh rings, with or without the crown are like Marian a part of our Irish heritage.

a) On the right hand with the point of the heart toward the fingertips, the wearer is a free person who often receives the ring from a relative.

b) On the right hand with the point of the heart toward the wrist, the wearer is in a relationship.

c) On the left hand with the point of the heart toward the fingertips, the wearer is promised.

d) On the left hand with the point of the heart toward the wrist, the wearer is married.

There is a legend about the origin of the ring, concerning Richard Joyce, a silversmith from Galway around 1700, whose initials are on one of the earliest surviving Claddagh rings, details of which are in the enclosed video.

Constructive critical feedback welcome.
