Hello,
My father is a uilleann pipes player and he will soon be a grandfather. I would like to announce it to him by bringing him a sheet music of lullaby for uillean pipes.

But it is not easy to find.

Anyone have this in stock?

I see him in one weeks.

Thank you

Nb
I thought of the title "dragon's lullaby" also known as "outlawed tunes on outlawed pipes" but impossible to find the scores.

Welcome frty2324. Assuming you are looking for traditional music, O'Neill's classic collection "Music of Ireland" has two compositions specifically named as lullabies.
The book is freely available as a pdf through the Petrucci Music Library: https://imslp.org/wiki/Music_of_Ireland_(O%27Neill%2C_Francis)
"A Lullaby," #233 on page 40 of the book (the 52nd page of the pdf)
"An Irish Lullaby" (Suantraidhe Eirinneach), #346 on page 60 of the book (the 72nd page of the pdf)

Perhaps you could print one of these pages out on a nicer linen paper or something like that, and frame it.

And just to clear something up about the "Outlawed tunes..." and "Dragon's Lullaby" that you mention... certain individuals in Youtube comments have been spreading the strange notion that the "Outlawed tunes..." composition from the "Braveheart" soundtrack is actually an ancient traditional Scottish bagpipe melody originally called "Dragon's Lullaby." That's simply not true. "Outlawed tunes..." was composed by James Horner for the movie.
There is another, more obscure, composition known as "Dragon's Lullaby," but it is not traditional either. It's also modern movie music, from a 1994 direct-to-video film called "Dragonworld." In typical Hollywood fashion, a couple of scenes depict a character playing this piece on Great Highland Pipes, while the sound heard is actually that of the Uilleann pipes.

If it comes to uilleann pipe lullabies I always liked Leo Rowsome's version of "The Castle of Dromore"

I’ve been playing Seothín Seó for some years. I scored it up and it’s in one of the An Piobaire issues from a few years ago. Sorry I’m not sure which one. Maybe a search on pipers.ie will produce something.

Impressive regulator playing! :o
I just found your arrangement, in the April 2017 edition, pages 16 and 17 (spread across the 11th page of the pdf file):

There's also James Whiteside's "Lullaby For Irish Pipes" in the February 2015 edition, page 19 (on the 10th page of the pdf file):

There is a tune in one of the O’Neill books called The Old Man Rocking the Cradle.
It’s an (air / jig) descriptive piece in which the piper or fiddler tries to imitate the crying of a baby before the rocking bit.
It would be ideal for your purposes.
Somewhere I have it in abc but would look nice printed from it’s source in a frame to ‘announce’ if that’s the intention here.

Here is a printable score that might work for you.
As long as your father in law won’t be offended by being the “Old Man”

Good Luck

The "Suantraidhe Eirinneach" lullaby in O'Neill's was composed by James O'Neill, and it is quite nice on the pipes. If you play it in G it goes up to the top B, which is kind of annoying for a lullaby, but if you play it in D you have to fiddle with the ending, but it sounds lovely with the drones. Take your pick.
IIRC Chris Norman recorded it on a Bb flute.

If it hasn't been posted, this is a really sweet tune, played slowly.
