Tina Mulrooney is a harpist and traditional Irish ballad
singer from Co, Clare in the rugged west of Ireland.
Tina has and still performs through out the summer
months for the past 23 years at the world famous Cliffs
of Moher and is now one of the controversial licenced
musicians on the site. In the Spring of 2006, Clare co
council issued all the musicians including Tina with
notices to vacate the site and that music was never to
be heard live at the Cliffs again . Tina and a number of
other musicians began campaigning to save their
livelihoods and to keep music alive on what was to
become the new Cliffs of moher experience.
Their campaign became worldwide knowledge and the
papers and TVs brought their stories into thousands of
homes nationally and internationally. Clare county
council then had to meet with the group and licences
were issued to a certain number of long term musicians.
Overall the last few years have proved that the
musicians are very welcome by tourists from all over
the globe. Tina states that there are rules with regards
to the licences which are issued and she says that rules
should apply to everyone and should be exercised by
everyone envolved. Overall itís a wonderful place to
play and Im delighted to have the opportunity to meet
so many wonderful people and share my music with
them. The new interpretive centre is well worth the
visit, and the rangers patrol the site making it a much
safer place especially for families to visit. Id like to
thank Katherine Webster director of Cliffs of Moher
experience for all her help over the last number of
My new cd Beneath the Moher sky is now available from
my website, or you can order directly from my home
address. .
My favourite track on the album is Wonder child which I
dedicate to my son Conor, he is 4 years old and my
biggest fan, whom I love dearly.
I thank you all who visit my site and the Cliffs during the
Summer months, itís a privilege to meet and know you
