Carolan’s Welcome

Turlough Carolan was a blind Irish harper and prolific composer much celebrated in his lifetime (1670 ā€“ 1738) and even more widely today.

The photograph is of Catherine FitzGerald at home in Glin Castle, Ireland, where Carolan’s harp stands by a bookcase, if I recall correctly.
