Very popular with our American Customers the O'Connors Glens of Antrim Irish Celtic Bodhran Tipper is made by an O'Connors Irish Craftsman, born in Antrim. Areas of Blackthorn bark still visible for contrast and style each one is unique and hand crafted. Blackthorn is a hard and rustic wood and these tippers reflect the naturally occuring markings of the blackthorn (smoothed of course for your Bodhran). Due to the exceptionally thorny nature of Blackthorn wood and where it grows in amongst dense brambles and bracken these take a lot of work to collect and work on.
