An Chúirt Chruitireachta - International Festival of Irish Harp. Cairde na Cruite was established in 1960 and has played a central role in the revival and development of interest in the Irish harp since that time. The society has made a significant contribution to the development of a vibrant dynamic role for the Irish harp, and its positioning within Irish traditional music in Ireland.  It  continues to position our national instrument at the forefront of developments in Irish traditional culture.

This year the festival goes online: see Eventbrite for bookings and tickets.
