notes and references

1. From a news cutting of the “Irish Independent” now in the archives of the Clarsach Society, no date but probably 1962/3, a photo of Mary with her harp and a description. I have not seen this clipping.

2. Information from Celia Briar, a harp student of Mary’s, via Bev Whelan.
