A huge welcome and thank you for coming into the world of Irish Piper Hire.
The haunting still hair raising sounds of the chanter and drone sounds, come together to give the beautiful sound to what is known as the bagpipes.
For many years its has been a Scottish tradition to be part of a Bride & Grooms Wedding day but in recent times it has become a familiar part of Wedding days the world over. To date I have performed for couples here in Ireland who have traveled from places as far as The USA, Canada, New Zealand, & Australia.
Originally From Achill Island, Co Mayo and believed to many as the home of Pipes & Drums I spent much of my youth and endless hours trying to master the art of learning the bagpipes. Over the last 30 years I have played with The Dookinella Pipe Band where the band have played nationally & internationally in its 70 year history. In recent years I have been a member of the Achill Pipe Band, a competing band that tasted success with All-Ireland, British and European victories as well as a history achieving 3rd place finish at the World Pipe Band Championships in Scotland. Two of my proudest moments to date has to be when we played in our national stadium for our national football team against both Austria and Denmark for World cup Qualifers.
Solely I have been performing nationwide for weddings and family gatherings and have felt honoured to been that something special for a special day.
