The Brian Boru Millennium Crown
Welcome to Jewels For Cures, a fundraising initiative raising funds for Cancer Clinical Research in Ireland.
The Brian Boru Millennium Crown is being created in commemoration of The High King of Ireland victor of The Battle of Clontarf which occurred on Good Friday 1014.
We are asking the fellow dynasties of Europe and others of European noble stock to contribute a small piece of personal gold jewellery which will be cast into the crown to link their families with our ancient High King.
The Irish people and the Diaspora are being asked to donate items of gold, platinum precious jewels and broken gold jewellery. For example: a single gold cufflink that has lost its mate, a broken gold ring or chain.
A particle of each person’s gold will be cast into the crown.The names of each contributor will be put on The Crown Brian Boru Heritage Scroll, leaving a legacy for your descendants.
This gives families a unique opportunity, especially in the year of The Gathering, to clear out their cupboards and jewellery boxes of old unwanted and broken gold jewellery, and donate it to a good cause. Those who donate will receive a PDF certificate based on the value of their donation which they can give to family members.
The Brian Boru Millennium Crown Fundraiser was launched in December 2012 at The National Museum of Ireland, Kildare Street, Dublin 2 by RTE’s Miriam O’Callaghan, Senator John Crown of the CCRT, Alison Mc.Cormick, Director of Jewels for Cures and Lucia O’Brien, daughter of The Lord Inchiquin, direct descendant of Brian Boru and the Jewels For Cures Committee.
This unique piece will be auctioned for charity in 2014 and hopes to raise a great sum of money for Cancer Clinical Research in Ireland, the buyer receiving a miniature replica. The crown itself will be put on public display in Ireland and be a legacy for hundreds of years to come.
Include your family and friends in the project and receive an acknowledgment for you and your family.
