The traditional Gaelic greeting, which is pronounced 'kayad meela foilcha' and means 'a hundred thousand welcomes.' The Celts respect the significance of the welcome as a threshold or rite of passage. Among Celts there is a wide recognition of the significance of chance meetings and random events, and a renowned openness to new experiences,opportunities and people. This is characterised by the expansive and generous nature of the phrase 'cead mile failte'. Shamrocks, the traditional symbol of Ireland, represent the good luck that can come when we are open to the possibilities associated with new meetings.
