This appears on the bottom of a souvenir ashtray I bought:

"An Tseapain Tir a Dheanta"

Any help appreciated!

Made in Japan
It's a job that's never started that takes the longest to finish.

On the topic of souvenirs...
One of owners of the firm I work for was in Ireland recently and brought me back a very cup.

Royal Tara fine bone china, handcrafted in Galway---I do believe that it makes my morning coffee taste better!

Thanks! I'm not THAT surprised - it's a very touristy kind of porcelain souvenir, like I collect, with the notable places pictured and named, and those are quite often Made in Japan. Isn't that a precious way to say it, though? :mrgreen:

Perhaps you can also help me with the Gaelic script that's on the front. Looks like "Seamnos óejrjrr [óeihinn?]" - can't really say. (The rest of the placenames are in regular English.)
