It's amazing really,that all the best female pipers happen to be women .More than just a coincidence I think !

Peter in your photo, who's the lady standing between Shiela and Emer, and who is the lady standing on Marie's right?

There are many other fine female pipers: Pamela Schweblin, Catherine Ashcroft, Becky Taylor, Tara Howley, Lottie Cullen, Grace Lemon, Rita Farrell to name a few

On this topic, also check out my article in the new issue on An Piobaire on Cork piper Miss May McCarthy and her tour of South Wales in December 1910.
