A Peace Harp for Ireland

One of Ron's greatest dreams is to build a giant wind harp in Ireland as a symbol of peace, and to use the 12th century "Brian Boru" harp as the inspiration.

When Ron was working a project to build a peace pagoda near Bainbridge Island (for an order of Japanese Buddhist monks who are dedicated to world peace and build peace pagodas all over the world), he met a Catholic nun from Ireland, who told him as long as he had designed a wind harp and a peace pagoda, that he should design a Peace Harp for Ireland.

She envisioned it standing on the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. She said, "The winds from the north and the south play the same beautiful melodies."

The project was once considered by a developer in Donegal, but the very commercial nature of the development didn't quite match the spirit of the Peace Harp.

Ron welcomes any suggestions for actually getting it built.
