The four-leaf clover or shamrock is one of the many good luck symbols that ordinary people everywhere turn to when in need of a little extra good fortune in their lives. The word Shamrock comes from the Gaelic dictionary and translates to “Seamrog”, meaning “Little Clover”. Usually, the clover has only three leaves belonging to the group of plants in the Trifolium group, literally meaning “having three leaves”. Each leaf is said to represent a different piece of goodness, Faith, Hope and Love. Only approximately 1 in every 10,000 clovers has a fourth leaf and it’s that aspect of the clover that makes it extremely lucky.

The horseshoe has been seen as a good luck symbol and part of a wedding ceremony for a very long time. The traditional horseshoe was made from iron and those that carried one believed it would ward off evil spirits and ghosts. It is thought that iron had such remarkable qualities because of its ability to withstand extremely high temperatures. The horseshoe was strung in a U position so that it could collect good fortune in its cup.
The beautiful ark of a multi-coloured rainbow is traditionally thought to be a good luck sign but don’t point at it or the good luck turns sour! Folklore says that Leprechauns guard a rainbow, offering a pot of gold to anyone who could locate the ends.
