Edmund Rice Camps Logo

Camps Logo

We have our very own camp logo, designed by Sean Bonner, a Presentation Brother from Ireland. The logo uses symbols of the swan, fish and horse / donkey and a spiral. The symbols have both a Christian and Celtic meaning.

Spiral

Celtic spiral expresses divinity, eternity and God’s presence in all things

Swan

Symbolises the Celtic story of Christ coming to Ireland, The Children of Lir – a story of freedom, faith and hope.

Fish

Celtic story of ‘Salmon of Knowledge’ and also symbol of Christ.

Horse/ donkey

Taken from Tír na nÓg, a Celtic story of youth and growth and can also be seen as donkey from nativity story
