Harp (5 Colours)

  • £14.13

National symbol of Ireland, the harp bordered by Celtic band and Celtic hearts.

In the days of the old chieftains harpists were held in high regard. Stories were often told to the music of the harp and it encompassed the spirit of the country. Harpists used to travel the country of Ireland performing their folk songs and stories for the public.
In the 16th century the music of the harp was seen as such a threat that The British Crown attempted to crush the Irish Spirit by ordering all harps to be burnt and all harpists executed. It was almost 200 years before the music of the harp was freely enjoyed in Ireland once again.
Today the image of the harp as a national symbol of Ireland is almost as well recognised as the shamrock.
