Na Píobairí Uilleann wishes to extend its deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Ashling Murphy of Tullamore. A talented musician, Ashling was a member of Na Píobairí Uilleann and a keen student of the uilleann pipes. Her passing leaves us shocked, saddened and heartbroken for all of those who were fortunate enough to have met her. Suaimhneas síoraí dá hanam.
