Bodhram Drum (detail)


Made by Eamon Maguire, Belfast, Northern Ireland

In addition to being a respected

maker of bodhrans—the round

frame drums widely used in

traditional Irish music—the

Belfast-based Maguire is also

known for his talents as a painter,

bog-oak carver, and dance

instructor. In his Ogham Gallery

and workshop on Belfast's Antrim

Road, he handcrafts all facets

of his bodhrans—from wooden

frames to goatskin drumheads

and decorative Celtic artwork
