Handmade Uilleann Pipes and Other Fine Instruments


  The Uilleann Pipes, also known as Irish or Union Pipes, were developed from old Piobmor, or war pipes, which were used in Ireland as early as the fifth century.  The modern-day Uilleann Pipes came about in the early 18th century.

"Heavenly King

If  I 'd only the fingers

You gave the piper,

To strike up a tune,

I 'd make music so charming,

We'd all leave the farm,

And go singing and dancing,

From morning to noon"
