Which musical instrument is the national symbol of Ireland?

harp
trumpet
snare
bagpipe
The harp, tra­di­tion­al­ly as­so­ci­at­ed with King David, was rare in medieval heraldry and its origins as the coat of arms of Ireland are unclear. Tri­an­gu­lar devices appeared on the medieval Irish coinage by kings John and Edward I in the 12th and 13th cen­turies. These devices may have been crude harps or it may be that the harp de­vel­oped from the use of tri­an­gles to dis­tin­guish Irish coins.
