Ciaran McNally is an acoustic guitar maker based in Co Armagh, Northern Ireland. Producing approximately 40 boutique and custom guitars per year. They are a blend of traditional American and modern Celtic guitar styles. Ciaran is a past student of two guitar making colleges and a former employee of two of Europe's best-known guitar companies.
Ciaran commented; “Firstly as a music lover I’m becoming increasingly concerned about the COVID situation with venues and musicians, and seemingly limited government support.
Like a lot of people during this time, I’ve also been trying to think of a way to be useful. Doing something that can help musicians in this manner, with an instrument, is a way for me to utilise my skills in a positive way during the crisis.”
