Sound of Ireland


A stellar line-up from the world of Irish traditional music, song and dance celebrate UNESCO recognition of Uilleann Piping


Leading artists including Noel Hill, Liam O’Connor, Seán McKeon, Paddy Glackin, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Robbie Hannan, Jimmy Canavan, the Rowsome Quartet and many more will feature in this unique performance which will be attended by Uachtarán na hÉireann, Michael D Higgins.

Last December, UNESCO  included Uilleann Piping on its Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This important global accolade reflects heritage cultural practices that are considered to enrich all of humanity. UNESCO has now agreed that Irish Uilleann Piping – often referred to as ‘The Sound of Ireland’ – merits this recognition.

Uilleann Piping is the first Irish element to be recognised by UNESCO, and the campaign for inscription on the Representative List was led by Na Píobairí Uilleann, who lobbied for Irish ratification of the UNESCO Convention, and assisted the Irish Government in preparing the nomination.
