The harp is an ancient musical instrument used in Ireland for centuries, it is also a symbol of Ireland. Harpists, who were often blind, occupied an honoured place in Irish society. Harpists and bards (or poets), played an important role in the social structure of Ireland. They were supported by chieftains and kings.
Carolan was one of the most famous harpists, and many Irish melodies inspired by him still survive to this day.
Although it is not as recognizable as the shamrock, the harp is a widely used symbol. It appears on Irish coins, the presidential flag, state seals, uniforms, and official documents, not to mention, a pint of the black stuff!
