The Triskele, or Triskelion, depicts a triple spiral around a central core. Ancient in origin, it first appeared in Ireland about 3,200 BC - it is carved into the neolithic Newgrange passage tomb in County Meath, Ireland. To the ancient Celts, and their Druid priests and priestesses, this symbol may have been a representation of the triple Kingdoms of Earth, Sea and Sky.
And as Christianity came to the Irish Celts, the Triskele took on a new meaning - and a central role in the legendary illuminated manuscripts of Ireland - including the Book of Kells. With its three spirals, the Triskele became the symbol of the Trinity: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It continues to be an enduring symbol of faith for Christians of Celtic origin throughout the world.
