Andreas Rogge 3/4 set Uilleann Pipes Missing/Stolen

A place for our musicians to post information about instruments lost, stolen, or otherwise missing.
Forum rules
This is the C&F-wide forum for posting notices of any instruments which have been lost or stolen, or have gone missing.

Titles should include at least the type of instrument (flute, fiddle, etc.), the place of disappearance, and the nature of the loss.

Example: Stolen: Generation D whistle in Timbuktu

Reports linked from other sources or internet sites should include the basic information in addition to just the link.

In order to limit cross-posting, and to keep reporting and information centralized in one place, a post linking to a notice here (but not a copy) may be posted in ONE other C&F forum, typically the forum of the instrument involved.

Of course, follow-up posts to announce found or recovered instruments are always welcome!

Thanks - Your ChiffCo Management

Andreas Rogge 3/4 set Uilleann Pipes Missing/Stolen

Post by piobaire mor »


I just want to spread the word of an Andreas Rogge 3/4 set in C# which have gone missing/stolen on their way to Andreas (Germany) from Ireland under the care of An Post, Ireland’s National Postal Service. The pipes are:
- 3/4 set in plumwood and brass with boxwood mounts.
- 3 Keys, G#, Fnatural and Bflat with a Stopkey.
- They were shipped in a large Viola case.

I’ve forgotten how to post pictures here but will when I read the old instruction posts.

If anyone is interested in hearing about my ongoing trouble dealing with An Post in relation to this matter, you can watch this YouTube video to hear the story:

This has already been circulated widely on Facebook but feel free to spread it further. If anyone ever comes across this set they contact me on:
