Irish Bones

My Story

Irish Bones was set up by Tom Connolly with a lot of help and encouragement from his sons Nathan and Daniel. We make and sell percussion instruments, mainly Irish bones. We make Irish Rhythm Bones and Irish Jig Dolls, percussion instruments that are fun, easy to play, and bring a smile to everyone’s face when they see them in action. Both instruments have a long history in many cultures across the world – but they are particularly suited to the wild and carefree traditional music of Ireland! All of our Irish bones are guaranteed Irish bones -being made from the ribs of beef from farms all over the Cork region. From time to time we do use other types of bone-some even made from wood.
