An Chúirt Chruitireachta in Termonfechin

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of attending An Chúirt Chruitireachta Annual International Harp Festival, organized by Cairde Na Cruite! My attendance was made possible by Ionad na Cruite, a harp research cluster based at the Irish World Academy. Ionad na Cruite was established in 2013 and aims to stimulate scholarship, performance and advanced research on all harp types with a special focus on the harp in Ireland. Many thanks to Ionad na Cruite for this generous support! The festival included daily tutorials and performances, and included a record breaking mass harp ensemble of more than 150 harps.
