Born in the little fishing town of Claddagh, County Galway, Richard Joyce was swept away and enslaved as a goldsmith. When he won his freedom he returned home to his beloved Claddagh. There, he gave his lost love a gold ring he had made depicting his two hands cradling a crowned heart , the very first Claddagh ring.
