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

Talk and Recital

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.

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

Be enchanted by the beautiful sounds and stories of the Irish harp in the atmospheric surroundings of Francis Johnston’s magnificent Chapel Royal.

This talk and recital is one hour in duration and begins at 6pm on selected dates.
