Handmade Uilleann Bagpipes

Nuair a théid sé fán chroí ní scaoiltear as é go bráth.

I no longer take formal orders. This no order "business model" affords the freedom to work in a completely creative manner focusing my energy entirely on the aesthetic, mechanical and acoustical perfection of my pipes. I always have irons in the fire, either an instrument ready for the piper's lap or very close to completion. This removes artistic constraints from me, the maker, and commitment from the piper also. Offering instruments on a "first-come" basis eliminates the pressure for the maker to work to a rigid brief and the piper to commit to an instrument years before it is ready.
