Irish Harp Centre Stage in Paris

Irish Embassy in Paris puts Irish Harp centre stage.

An evening of celebration of Irish harping at the Irish Embassy in Paris was very kindly hosted by the Irish ambassador to France, HE Patricia O’ Brien, on 16 October 2019.


This was a special performance to extend an appreciation and awareness of Irish Harping as a unique element of Ireland’s rich cultural heritage in the stunning surroundings of the Irish Embassy in Paris. The audience were spellbound by the wonderful and diverse performances of Siobhán Armstrong, Teresa O’Donnell and Séamus Ó Flatharta.

L to R:
Áine Ní Dhubhghaill, Sineád O’Hara, Aileen Kennedy, Aibhlín McCrann, Siobhán Armstrong, HE Dermot Nolan, HE Patricia O’Brien, Séamus Ó Flatharta, Teresa Ó Donnell, Kieran Hanrahan.
