Academic

As well as being passionate about the harp, I equally love history. My research areas include, the symbolism of the harp in Ireland, Irish musicology, political ballads, Irish cultural nationalism and the works of William Percy French and William Houston Collisson,

lecture/Recitals

In collaboration with my sister Mary Louise O’Donnell, we present a number of one-hour lectures or talks on historical topics, interspersed with harp music and song. We have delivered lecture/recitals and workshops for events such as, Heritage Week and Seachtain na Gaeilge for Fingal, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown and Dublin City Councils, Road to the Rising, Cruinniú na Cásca, Dublin Castle (OPW) summer lectures, Cruinniú na nÓg, Dublin Festival of History and World Harp Congress.
