Claire Fennell on Uileann pipies in concert with the Kilkenny pipers Feb 2015

Claire Fennell on uileann pipes 
It was a great honor for one of our junior teachers, Claire Fennell to be asked to attend and perform at a recent concert held by the Kilkenny Piper's Club in Cleere's. Claire would be known to most for playing the flute and tin whistle, but a couple of years ago she decided she wanted to try the Uilleann pipes. Some people had reservations as Claire, even though still very young, was classed as being a late starter where this particular instrument was concerned.....but Claire being Claire proved those doubting few wrong and is now playing with some of the best pipers in the country. Our branch is no stranger to this somewhat complex instrument with another of our junior teachers, Shannon Kearney who holds several All Ireland medals and a younger student Luke Power winning County and Munster medals. To all our pipers, keep up the good work so that the three hundred year old tradition of the Irish pipes will live on for future generations to come!
