Each of these Mulligans Ireland “Island Range” of scarves has been inspired by and named after an Irish Island.  Each one comes with a story about the island, its history and inhabitants.

The Hang Tag story card reads…

“Toraigh lies 9 miles off the north-west coast of County Donegal, Toraigh (pronounced Tory) is the most remote of Ireland’s inhabited islands where people still talk of ‘travelling to Ireland’.
Toraigh is famous for its school of ‘primitive painters’, who were encouraged by the internationally famous painter, the late Derek Hill. Gailearaí Dixon exhibits the work of island artists.  Interesting historical sites include a round tower that once protected monks from Viking raids, the ruins of St Colmcille’s 6th century monastery and the intriguing Tau Cross that suggests early seafaring links to the Coptic Christians of Egypt.”
