To celebrate St Patrick’s Day we are sharing a couple of traditional Irish tunes courtesy of Con Houlihan. Con is the Pipe Major of the Cullen Pipe Band from the Sliabh Luachra area of County Cork. He is also a Grade 1 CLASP competitor and is the father of Silver Medal winner Margaret Dunn, who is an employee and tutor at The National Piping Centre. A link to the Cullen Pipe Band’s website is here.

It would be great to hear renditions of these two tunes, so feel free to record your playing and tag on facebook, instagram or twitter. #irishpipetunes
