Brian Bórumha mac Cennétig was for a brief, shining moment
—like the legendary King Arthur—High King of a unified land. 
Known as the progenitor of the Clan O'Brien, 
his legacy is a reminder of the strength of a unified Ireland. 
The national emblem of the harp is named after him 
(on display at Trinity College). The evocative traditional tune, 
“Brian Boru’s March” is played everywhere on everything from 
pipes to harp. 
In this piece, he is facing the sea as the Norsemen keep coming. 
The Harp, sword and shield are both rising and falling into the sea.
