Thread Name: Bodhran history
Subject: RE: Help: Bodhran history
There is also a link somewhere on The Bodhran Page to a book by Janet McCrickard, who has done a fair amount of research on the origin of the Bodhran. I believe the word Bodhran comes from the old Gaelic phrase for " something that everyone wants to play, but nobody wants to hear." :-}
You can get to the Bodhran home page from the above link.
