The Celtic hounds were a breed of dogs in Gaelic Ireland described in Irish legend. Celtic Hounds can be found in Celtic jewellery designs and paintings as far back as the 17th century. Celtic Hounds symbolise hunting, healing, and the Otherworld in Celtic legends. Hounds were the traditional guardian animals of roads and crossways and are believed to protect and guide the lost souls of the Otherworld. 

This is a great quality 12" celtic bodhran which features a very attractive CeltIc design and is made by McNeela Music. A great Irish bodhran.
