After 12½ years in St Andrews I have moved to Armagh – from the ancient ecclesiastical centre of Scotland, to the ancient ecclesiastical centre of Ireland.
Armagh is a lovely city built on seven hills. Two of the hills have the two cathedrals on; one has the observatory, and I live on another. The city is full of learning and culture, and I look forward to exploring its library and museum collections as well as finding out more about the cultural life of the city.
I am within easy travel distance of both Belfast and Dublin and so I hope to be in both those cities regularly, as well as travelling more around Ireland.
I also hope to continue coming to Scotland – I already have a concert booked in Aberdeen in September.
I have not yet decided what to do about the web address of this blog. When I set up clarsach.scot I did not consider that I might be based furth of Scotland! But it has turned into my primary research publication place – I am maintaining earlygaelicharp.info but my new research mostly gets put here alongside musings and news.
