The obstacle,strangely enough, consists, not in our meeting the cost of such a stairway, which isbeyond our means in any event, but in that a stairway of the kind could not, becauseof Town Planning requirements, be erected in the front of the premises and one erectedin the rere would be unacceptable since there is no safe exit from the area into which itwould descend . The Corporation has been asked to cast a sympathetic eye on the caseand the departments involved, it is understood, are consulting with each other to see whatway can be devised out of this impasse.The Committee ore making a collection of the music of Willie Clancy for the archives ofthe Society. Members who have any material recorded from WilUe on pipes or wh fle,are asked to lend it for examination and copying. All material collected so far has beenindexed musically so that no undue delay should occur in returning any material lent forthe purpose. Please advise the editor if you can help.Activities commemorating the memory of Willie Cloiicyon Milfown Maibay in July 29/August 4 next will include a summer school of piping conducted by Seamas Ennis. Acertain competence in playing is required for participation. Members able to be inMiltown during the period and wishing to be considered for admission to the course,should leave their names with Pat Mitchell during the weekend of An Tionol.Your annual subscription to NPU is now due. Please note that no copy of An Piobaire,notices or other communications, will be sent to any member who is in arrears.The Committee are anxious to make for the archives a recording of each member presentat An Grianan. Even a tune or two will suffice. Tom Munnelly has been deputed to makethese recordings and members are asked for their fullest cooperation. A continuousperformance of piping is being arranged at the request of members who wish to hear themusic in surroundings conducive to good listening and recording.
