Was wondering could anyone in UK/Ireland help. I would like to have a gaelic inscription engraved on to the brass of my [uilleann pipes] stock. I really like the old type gaelic font. Anyone know where this can be done ? I've had a quick google and come up empty so far.

I don't know much about this ... But I'd think that a good commercial-quality Gaelic typeface, a good Irish Bunchló or Seanchló, would be a start. Some engravers might be able to transfer the font directly to the engraving, or use a printed sample as a template or model. You can Google "cló Gaelach" and follow some of the links.

Don't know if that's helpful ...

P.S. I'll copy this to our Irish Language forum, so check there for possible answers, too.
