These he saw in 1774 when OKeefe - a Dublin actorand dramatist - first saw McDonnell on stage. McDonnell was apparently afamous piper and lived in great style.The term regulator was first mentioned by William Beauford in a description ofthe pipes written in 1789. In an earlier description of 1785 he did not mentiona regulator.The term organ pipes was used (1774) before the regulator was added.The term union pipes first appears in 1794.A
