Writing for Now Online, Michelle Lynch looks at the famous Tara Brooch, one of the great treasures in the National Museum of Ireland that "makes the heart sing."

The article studies the importance of the brooch.

"This pin is 7 inches long in total, and there are more than 20 dragons on it. It was made in early 700 A.D. by someone who was rich and probably educated. At that time, many lords were sending their children here to be educated, as Ireland had a lot of monasteries."
