We are delighted to extend to you a warm welcome to our website and trust that you will find it informative. The Pipers’ Club is an active and expanding branch of Comhaltas Ceoltoirí Éireann with a long and proud history, and a key involvement in the formation of that organisation back in the early 1950s.

Music and singing classes are available through the Branch and these are held mostly on Wednesday and Saturday nights. Classes include: Uilleann Pipes, Flute, Whistle, Fiddle, Concertina, Harp, Traditional Singing, Banjo and Accordian. For more information on classes, please contact our Branch Secretary.

We also run a regular weekly traditional session on Saturday nights in the Culturlann, Monkstown, Co. Dublin. All visitors are more than welcome to drop in to this session and musicians who wish to join us for a few tunes will be made particularly welcome. In addition to the Bar facilities in the Centre, musicians and their friends will normally be treated to a cup of tea and a biscuit.

For our members our annual Mass and children’s party will be held on 11th December 2011 at 4pm. We hope to see Santa there too!

Last class this term Wednesday 14th and Saturday 17th December 2011. Classes resume in the new term Wednesday 11th and Saturday 14th January 2012.

History of the Piper’s Club

The origins of the Dublin Pipers’ Club are tied up with the Literary Revival, which focused interest on all aspects of our culture including the music. The National Literary Revival that began during the closing decade of the nineteenth century heralded the birth of the Gaelic League, the Feis Ceoil and the Dublin Pipers’ Club (all Dublin based).
