Turlough O'Carolan was one of the best musicians of Ireland. He was born in the 17th century and is known as the 'last of the Irish bards'. He spent most of his life travelling around Ireland, singing and playing the harp. Only one of O'Carolan's songs is in English. All of his other songs are in Irish. However, he is most famous for his harp music.

Most of O'Carolan's music was not written down during his lifetime. It was collected during the 18th and 19th centuries. O'Carolan's music is still very popular today.
