Lá na Cruite, Harp Day 2023

Another successful Lá na Cruite|Harp Day delivered by harpers all over Ireland and the world. Míle buíochas daoibh ar fad; bhí fuaim na cruite le cloisteáil ó cheann ceann na tíre ó thuaidh agus ó theas.

More than 70 events that we know of took place, with countless other events happening, as harpers took down their harps to celebrate the richness of our 1000-year old tradition. Our thanks to our funders and to everybody who supported us.

Watch out for videos and harp events from Lá na Cruite | Harp Day in the coming months. In the meantime, get planning for Lá na Cruite | Harp Day 2024 which will happen on Saturday/Sunday October 19th/20th.
