A Celebration of the Irish Harp - Céiliúradh na Cruite @ The Chapel Royal | County Dublin | Ireland

The O’Donnell sisters trace the history of the Irish harp, its music and its use as a symbol in this unique talk and musical recital which provides a wonderful insight into the instrument that has formed part of Irish culture and history for over a thousand years.

The Irish harp, in various shapes and sizes, surmounted by a crown, set against a blue or green background, etched on the brass buttons of military uniforms or sometimes linked with other images such as shamrocks or caps of liberty, has been embedded in Irish politics and culture for centuries.

Be enchanted by the beautiful sounds and stories of the Irish harp in the atmospheric surroundings of Francis Johnston’s magnificent Chapel Royal. This venue is an outstanding example of 19th century Gothic Revival architecture and will function as a magnificent backdrop to these fantastic events. Please book your ticket in advance so you don’t miss out!

This event is one hour in duration and begins at 6pm on 12th, 13th, 18th, 19th and 20th of July.
