Martin, perhaps @Macaodha can advise on a luthier in Ireland?
Hi Martin, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
Thanks very much folks,look forward to learning some more about the mountain dulcimer,I do enjoy listening to it’s sweet song,hopefully get one some day ,but it’s not the sort of instrument readily available in these parts ,if there are any other Irish folks who can point me in the direction of a maker or place to buy one I’d be appreciative of some advice.
Welcome to FOTMD Martin. It is good to have you aboard. Enjoy exploring this site.
