Some piping snaps from the Willie week. It's one of those days where the warm mist from the ocean changes into wet and windy and back, so I am sorting through things.

Some lovely piping during the week, best not single anyone out (for fear of leaving anyone out) but Tiarnan Duinchin and Mickey Smyth creating stunning soundscapes while playing Dm-ish airs. There were some pipers I hadn't heard for decades: Finbar Furey, Eoin Kenny among them, bringing back memories of the sounds of the seventies and early eighties. Simon Doyle and his family were playing great stuff on the street all the time, Eanna Drury doing great work playing classic Ennis and Reck tunes (and more). Not to mention encounters with people I hadn't talked to for thirty years (Heather, what a great surprise!!), and the ones that hadn't been away that long. All put together, it made for a good one.

Hello

Thanks Peter for the photographs. Very much appreciated by those of us who couldn't make it this year. Nice to see the Eoin Kenny's fashion sense hasn't deserted him. :)

Keep well

John

Only a few of them, very few of them.

Sorry about that, I usually try for a bit more variety but this was just a little sample for the piping forum without the intention of leading anyone astray.

Nice pics as ever. Just one small thing - it's Mikey Smyth not Mickey Smith.

Eeeh.. yes. I know it's Smyth. And that's how I spelled it, twice, in the post above. I'll grant you I got Mikie wrong but you got that wrong yourself as well. Image

Yeah ... I've seen it spelled both Mikey and Mikie. Mikey several times on Comhaltas pages so I picked that. Also, that's the way I thought it was, but could be wrong. The point though is that it's definitely not Mickey.
