This chess set is delicately handmade and crafted by O'Gowna Studio in Ireland. The Celtic Chess Set is based on the ancient Irish game of ‘Fidchell’, devised by Lugh the Ildána, the Celtic God of Arts and Crafts in the 9th Century. The four corner squares represent the four provinces of Ireland with the center square representing the fifth province of Meath, where the High King sat on the Hill of Tara. The High King has eight defenders but there are also twelve attackers. The objective of the game is for the High King to travel to one of the four provinces without being captured. With 12 attackers and only 8 defenders how is the King ever to win?

A fantastic Irish gift for someone to put their skills to the test!
