GLENGALL LUNULA

Glengall,-Lunula

Found 1835 at Glengall, Ballingarry, Thurles, Co. Tipperary
Gold lunula in three pieces. Flat sheet gold crescent with oval terminals rotated relative to the crescent. It is decorated with an incised geometric pattern. The decoration extends down the body in the form of a border parallel to the inner and outer edges which comprises a sequence of parallel lines and crosses. The horns are decorated with patterns of horizontal parallel lines, oblique lines, diamond shaped motifs, triangles and diamond voids created by opposing filled triangles touching at their apex. The surface of the lunula is highly crinkled rather than smooth, perhaps indicating that it has been folded or rolled in the past.
o Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age

The earliest of the Irish gold ornaments are the flat gold collars known as lunulae. These have been found fairly evenly distributed over the country, and in astonishing numbers. The circumstances under which the lunulae have been found have not often been recorded. The collection of the Royal Irish Academy in the National Museum, Dublin, contains no less than thirty-seven examples. Several of these have been found and recorded during the past three or four years. As a rule the lunulae are engraved on one face only with finely cut or scored well-recognized Bronze Age ornament, consisting of bands of lines, cross-hatchings, chevrons, triangles, and lozenges.
