visit all the pages on this website ( in the left hand  margin of the opening page) and see the variety of items on offer. ALL are made by me and I’m not acting as an agent or a  shop for goods made somewhere else by other suppliers. All model names are registered and listed under my name .Be wary of so called good offers of Irish harps on certain websites as many of these instruments are not suitable for playing .If in doubt call me and I will advise you free of charge on the value of these instruments .
