The tradition of the Claddagh Symbol dates back to the 16th Century when Richard Joyce, a native of Galway was captured by Algerian Corsairs while on his way to the West Indies. He was sold as a slave to a wealthy Moorish goldsmith who trained him in the craft. His master took a great liking to him and offered him his freedom which Richard happily accepted. He returned to his native country and settled down in the ancient village of Claddagh, just outside Galway city, where he designed and made the first Claddagh ring. It soon became very popular with local people as a Betrothal or Wedding Symbol. Today, because of this tradition, the Claddagh continues to grow in popularity and is used internationally as a sign of great friendship and love. Verbeia Romano-British goddess of the river Wharfe in Wharfedale, Yorkshire
