Irish harp on UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


Cruit Éireann, Harp Ireland, is currently working towards getting the harp in Ireland considered for ratification under the UNESCO 2003, UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.

UNESCO defines intangible cultural heritage as the representation of living forms of heritage that cannot be touched – unlike, for example, our built heritage. It refers to the practices, representations and expressions that are central to the lives and identities of our communities, groups and individuals.

As our national symbol, the harp is intrinsic to our Irish identity and to our sense of ourselves. Consequently, we are appealing to members of the public to pledge their written support for our application to UNESCO. We will assemble these letters and present them as part of our bid. Please send any letters (signed and scanned) to info@harpireland.ie before Wednesday March 7th 2018, at the latest or acknowledge your support via signature here. 

Tacaígí linn más feidir!!
