Spideog | Robin Irish Print
Spideog | Robin Irish Print
'Spideog ' / Robin
The beautiful spideog doesn't migrate far in the winter like many other birds do, we get its birdsong all winter as the males protect their patch from other robins, nice and territorial! I found that the Glasgow coat of arms has a robin on it and the line 'the bird that never flew' is associated with it, giving a nod to its winter presence (also a connection to St Mungo who brought a robin back to life.) In Victorian times English post men were nicknamed robins due to their red jackets. The high amount of letters and cards delivered around Christmas kick started the imagery of the spideog as a Christmas symbol.

--------------------- About this Project ---------------------
I started this project to re-kindle my own relationship to the Irish language, a language I spent many years learning in school and now I want to share the passion I have with this language with others.
Every effort has been made to ensure the meaning, spelling and pronunciation of the Irish words are correct. The sounded out pronunciation is only a rough guideline to help with speaking the words.
