Mary recorded this lovely song, A La Claire Fontaine, by the fireside at Rivendell, her home since 1980. The cottage was built in 1667 by people fleeing the Plague and the Great Fire of London. Recording had to be halted several times because of the twittering of birds coming down the chimney
Mary O'Hara does not sing professionally or record any more. She retired from the concert platform in 1994.
Mary O'Hara does however still play the harp but only to assist her in writing down her harp accompaniments
She is currently publishing these in a series of music sheet books entitled Travels With My Harp
Mary considers herself now retired but she still does talks and presentations. In March 2007 she gave 32 talks in Australia and, just recently, she gave talks at the 7th European Harp Symposium in Wales and at the Yeats International Summer School in Sligo, her home town in west of Ireland.
