Anywhere you look in Ireland, you cannot avoid the Trinity College Harp. It is used as the official emblem of Ireland. It is synonymous with Irish revolution, culture and a famous black beer. Its unique Irish shape adorns the coats of arms and passports of four different nations!

The Irish didn’t just play harps. For nearly a thousand years the sound was a part of the atmosphere of their lives. Yet for all this…today, bizarrely, most Irish people have never heard their harp play a single note! The Trinity College Harp is a particular type of harp – a Gaelic harp. These types of harps died out in the 19th century. They were a central feature of Irish life for a very long time.

This book attempts to bring back to life – in all its technicolor brilliance – the world and the music (downloadable inside) of the Gaelic harps through the prism of the most famous one – which experts now agree was one of the most technologically advanced musical instruments of its time. This is a cultural story that every Irish person should know, and indeed anybody with an interest in the music history of the Western World.


Ní féidir Cláirseach Chólaiste na Tríonóide a sheachaint in Éirinn, sa lá atá inniú ann. Is í an samhail a úsáidtear do shuaitheantas oifigiúil na hÉireann. Is í séala oifigiúil an rialtais Éireannaigh – mar aon le hairgead na hÉireann agus beoir dhubh cháiliúil.

Bhí traidisiúin agus seinnt na cláirsí i gceartlár shaol na nGael ar feadh míle bliain nach mór. Ach in ainneoin seo, níl nóta amháin dá gcláirseach cloiste ag formhór mhuintir na hÉireann sa lá atá inniú ann – dochreidte, nach ea? Is cláirseach faoi leith í Cláirseach Choláiste na Tríonóide – cláirseach Ghaelach, sé sin. D’éag na cláirseacha seo sa 19ú haois. Bhídís ríthábhachtach i saol na nGael ar feadh na gcianta.

Déanfaidh an leabhar seo iarracht brí agus anam a chur i saol agus i gceol (is feidir a íoslódáil laistigh) na gcláirseach Gaelach seo trí mheán an chinn is clúití – Cláirseach Choláiste na Tríonóide. Déanfaidh sé iarracht beocht a thabhairt do chultúr na ndaoine a chum an uirlis sainiúil seo, uirlis ceoil nach raibh comhghleacaí aici ó thaobh na teicneolaíochta de lena linn féin, dar leis na saineolaithe. Is cóir go mbeadh aithne ag gach Éireannach ar an scéal cultúir seo, mar aon le héinne a bhfuil suim acu i stair an cheoil sa Domhan Thiar.
