And what's wrong with the harp? Ireland is the only country in the world with a musical instrument as a symbol, and I defy an army of 'designers' to come up with a substitute symbol of equivalent power! And it doesn't have to be green, the usual connotation of the shamrock!
Of course there is no end to invention, and I am not arguing for harps on every occasion! I do agree with the tiredness associated with spirals, which is so closely acssociated with archaeology in Ireland itself, and is probably meaningless to foreigners.
But don't kick out the harp!

I'm sure you've seen it MTV have used the dreaded 'spiral' as one of their images for the Music Awards to be hosted in Dublin next month.
