Grianán An Aileach Suite has been made with the help of Creative Ireland, Donegal Co Council and our key funder, The Arts Council. It features as many as 60 harpers from across Ulster and Co Louth performing a specially commissioned piece, filmed at Grianán an Aileach in Donegal a couple of months ago, to celebrate Lá na Cruite | Harp Day 2023. The music was arranged by Donegal harper-arranger, Joleen McLaughlin.
