What’s On

Lá na Cruite, National Harp Day

Saturday 17th October 2020



Did you know that there are currently more than 1000 harp players in Ireland? Harp Ireland, Cruit Éireann’s first major initiative was to hold a national harp day to celebrate this wonderful upsurge of interest in the instrument, introducing it to even more players and to new audiences and recognise the harp’s unique place in Irish musical and cultural life.

This year, harp events took place at a number of key venues in cities and towns nationwide including Belfast, Dublin, Mayo, Galway, Limerick, Laois, Louth, Meath and Wexford.

National Harp Day 2020 takes place on Saturday 17th October.
