In this case not Irish, but cockney rhyming slang.

I took the etching in to be reframed today, and after taking it out of the crumbling old frame we found some interesting information that was previously hidden, including a date (1857) and a title ('The Piper'). Perhaps most interesting though is the name of the artist who produced the etching, Edward Goodall (1795-1870). Edward was the father of Frederick Goodall, the painter of the original painting, 'The Irish Piper' on which the etching is based.
