  • A shamrock is a symbol of Ireland. it is a three-leafed old white clover. It is a common way to celebrate St. Patrick's day by wearing a shamrock which is said to bring good luck. Something I just learned...While the four leaf clover is said to bring good is the three leafed clover that is associated with the Irish celebration St. Patrick's Day.
