The Irish harp is the official emblem for Ireland and this status dates back several centuries. Today a representation of the traditional harp is to be found on the Presidential seal and official documents and on Irish euro coins. It’s known as the Celtic harp, the Gaelic harp or the cláirseach (in Irish).

The harp was once the most popular instruments in ancient times with harpists employed to play for Chieftans. After the Flight of the Earls in 1607, when their patrons fled to mainland Europe, the harpists were left to travel the country and play wherever they could. In the mid 1700’s the tunes began to be officially written down for the first time and collectors began to travel the country compiling music.

The Celtic harp sits proudly among Ireland’s main traditional instruments - the fiddle, Irish flute, tin whistle, uilleann pipes and bodhrán. Celebrate the musical traditions of Ireland with the Fleadh and Rings from Ireland!
