- Have A Go Irish Medieval Harp
In the mid 19th Century Drogheda was the last major centre for the survival of the Irish harp tradition.

These classes are intended for total beginners of all ages who might like to try out this extraordinary instrument.
Classes run from 2:30 to 3:15 and 4:00 to 4:45 and will cost only €10 per person. Booking is essential as there are only a limited number of instruments. Phone 041-9833097
