‘Smugairleróin’ is the Irish word for ‘jellyfish’. Rón means ‘seal’, and Smugairle is ‘thick spittle’ – so directly translated the Irish for jellyfish is ‘sealspittle’!
Ireland has 5 indigenous jellyfish:
The Lion’s Mane, Barrel, Blue, Common (or Moon), and Compass Jellyfish.
Sightings of jellyfish are increasing in numbers around the Irish coast, including sightings of The Portuguese Man-of-War which has a severe sting that is potentially lethal.
We have screen-printed our design in our studio in Co. Waterford using water-based inks, onto 100% organic cotton Earth-Positive t-shirts.
The t-shirts are ethically made, manufactured solely using sustainable energy generated from wind and solar power.
The box packaging is an optional extra, it is also screen-printed by us and the card is made from 100% recycled material.
