Hand crafted Medieval Lyre, donated to UCD School of Archaeology

On my first voyage aboard a Viking Longship. We were sailing into Henningsvær. When the fjord came into view, our skipper called on his shanty man to sing a song. The midnight sun was rising, a light wind carried us into the harbour at a slow and steady pace, as the words of Luke Kelly’s Auld Triangle echoed around the surrounding mountains. They even eventually turned the music off.. Probably my favourite moment from my time in Norway.
