In 2005, Sydney unveiled a ten ton tribute to the folk music and traditions of the province’s Celtic community.
Designed and constructed by Cyril Hearn, the fiddle and the bow reach a height of 60 feet and can be seen by the incoming cruise ships in the harbour. Made of solid steel, the giant fiddle was dubbed FIDHEAL MHOR A’ CEILIDH or the “Big Fiddle of the Ceilidh”. Ceilidh is a Gaelic word which translates into “visit”.
