The Boar

Those who bore the mark of the boar signaled to others their resistance to enemies and they possessed courage (and often stubbornness).

On its softer side, the boar also represented hospitality and an ability to easily communicate. The boar was a favorite of Celtic homemakers. And everyone considered boar meat to be a delicacy.


Is minic a bhris béal duine a shrón.

Many a time a man’s mouth broke his nose.
