Festival 2018

We had a great summer and a great festival in 2018!

We had a fantastic time and have loads of images from the many events at the 2018 festival, with thanks to Kieran Cummins Photography for the photos.

Each year Cairde na Cruite organise a festival to showcase the Irish Harp and to celebrate Irish Harp music.
