Claddagh (Irish: an Cladach, meaning “the shore”) is an area close to the center of Galway city, where the River Corrib meets Galway Bay. It was formerly[when?] a fishing village, just outside the old city walls. It is just across the river from the Spanish Arch, which was the location of regular fish markets where the locals supplied the city with seafood as recently as the end of the 19th century. People have been gathering seafood & fishing from the area for millennia. It is one of the oldest former fishing villages in Ireland - its existence having been recorded since the arrival of Christianity in the 5th century.[citation needed] During the 19th century the Claddagh attracted many visitors, including writers who spread its fame. The original village of thatched cottages was razed in the 1930s & replaced by a council-housing scheme. The Claddagh is most famous internationally for the Claddagh ring, which is popular among those of Irish heritage as both a friendship & wedding ring. This traditional design consists of two clasped hands holding a crowned heart, & symbolizes love, friendship & loyalty. The Claddagh area contains a national school, Community Centre & a Catholic Church as well as the new Claddagh Arts Centre. Notable natives of the area include Thomas Grady, recipient of the Victoria Cross. Claddagh Wallet, Celtic Knot Leather Wallet
