The Brian Boru Harp, now in Trinity College Dublin, does not actually date from the time of Brian, but was made in 1220 for Donnchadh Cairbre O'Brien, King of Thomond. It had thirty metal strings. The harp has been the possession of of many people, some of whom were kings.
Brian Boru, Irish: Brian Bóroimhe (about 941–23 to 1014). Believed to be a redhead, he was the last great High King of Ireland and perhaps one of the country's greatest military leaders, credited with unifying the regional leaders of Ireland and free the land from the 'Danish' (Vikings). His 2nd, and famous, marriage was to Gormflaith, rumored to be a vivid redhead.
