Bodhran, an Irish Drum
  Irish Cottage Logo

Music and song are the foundation of Irish culture. A common method of self-expression, music tells the stories of past generations.

The Bodhrn (an Irish drum) is Ireland's oldest form of musical instrument. The drum is made of goat skin and an ash wood hoop. Once used as a drum of war, the striking beat of a Bodhrn can evoke strong emotions.
