Rose Mooney's harp, also known as Carolan's Harp. Since the 19th Century this harp has been claimed to be that of the famous harper Turlough O'Carolan (1670 - 1738). Ann Heymann has argued that this instrument was in fact played by Rose Mooney (1740 - c.1798). It is badly damaged and crudely repaired at the base. Ireland, late 17th century.
