Sponsored by Horkans

ST PATRICK’S DAY is the day when we come together to celebrate and share our rich culture and heritage wherever we are in the world.

From Dublin to London to New York, streets across the world will be filled with revellers dressed in green, proudly parading their Irish roots and ethnicity.

So wherever you are in the world why not wear a little piece of Ireland this St Patrick’s Day?

Horkans are delighted to announce that we can deliver traditional Irish shamrock to your friends and relatives anywhere in the UK, USA or mainland Europe.

Horkans are a family owned and run business, based in Co. Mayo in the west of Ireland.

You can order your shamrock here

The Horkan family have a long history of shamrock growing and expert gardening. Today the company is run by three brothers.

In the 1940’s, their grandmother Sarah Horkan began growing shamrock for export and the tradition continues to this day.

The shamrock is firmly established as the most instantly recognisable emblem and is the treasured symbol of Ireland.

Horkans Irish Shamrock is the true species of Irish shamrock, Trifolium Dubium.

The shamrock is grown in a special hydrogel using no soil which removes the threat of contamination and makes it suitable for exporting to most parts of the world.

The shamrock comes with root intact, so you can plant it in your own garden or pot it up after you wear it on St Patrick’s Day.

The gel gives the shamrock a shelf life of up to 14 days and it can then be stored once refrigerated for 6-8 weeks.

Horkans Irish shamrock is available to send individually, to families, to teams, clubs or associations and you can send from 1 individual shamrock up to 200+.

Horkans will ensure we will deliver in time for you to wear your shamrocks with pride, a smile on your face and love and laughter in your heart as you celebrate St Patrick’s Day.

Final date for British orders is March 8, 2017.
