barrygeo Lyr Req: Flight of Earls (Liam Reilly) (18) RE: Lyr Req: Flight of Earls 27 Jun 00


It is interesting to note from a musical point of view that it was Henry VIII who introduced the harp as the national symbol of IReland to replace the three crowns of Munster. He felt that the three crowns flag could be seen as a symbol of an alternative royal power.

Interesting that a symbol introduced by an English monarch should become such a strong symbol for Irish nationalists.
