Celtic Chessmen
Theme Chess Set Pieces

The Celtic people were inhabitants of areas of Western Europe, particularly Ireland, Wales, Brittany and the Highlands of Scotland. They were subjected to raids by Vikings and Norsemen and our chess set is the story of a battle between the Irish King, Brian Boru, and the Viking invaders. The battle took place at Clontarf, near Dublin and was a fierce encounter.

Although the Celts managed to defeat the Viking invaders, their King, Brian Boru, was slain. This chess set features the principal characters involved in the battle and depicts Celtic designs and artifacts of the period.

Almost one thousand years old the Celtic inhabitants of Ireland rose up under their Brian Boru to fight the invading and colonizing Vikings. Based on the Battle of Clontarf in 1014 AD, our chess set portrays many of the characteristics of the era with authentic and historically correct artifacts shown in splendid detail. The skill and workmanship of the Celtic tribes was demonstrated by their artistic and unique designs, recognized throughout the world and reproduced here in this magnificent chess set.
