Breaking News March 31st 2020

Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, we are sad to say that we have been forced to cancel an Chúirt Chruitireachta, our International Festival for Irish Harp. We will be issuing deposit refunds as soon as we can, but bear with us as we are a small, voluntary team.

 

We are currently exploring how we might bring you the best of Irish harping virtually.

 

In the meantime, stay safe and keep harping. We will be back.

 

Go dté sibh slán. Beidh lá eile ag na cruitirí!
