The Rose in the Gap: Dance Music of Oriel from the Donnellan Collection

Gerry O’Connor will present an online talk based on The Rose in the Gap: Dance Music of Oriel from the Donnellan Collection (2018), a recent publication of traditional instrumental music from the South East Ulster area. His talk will highlight the rich body of dance music that was in circulation in counties Louth, Armagh, Monaghan and Cavan over 100 year ago. The influence of Scottish music and culture celebrated in this area will also be examined. The talk will feature landscape images of the area, maps locating the music to place, and quality images of the original hand written manuscripts. Music from the collection will be played by Gerry on the night. 

Due to current public health guidelines, there will be no in person audience. The talk will be live streamed through our channel NPU-TV and will start at 8:30pm on Thursday 20th January 2021.

Na Píobairí Uilleann presents Notes & Narratives – a series of monthly performance-based lectures on traditional music, song and dance by some of Ireland’s finest traditional artists.

Mayo Pipers of the Past

Michael’s research has identified more than 80 Mayo pipers born pre-1920 (including 15 mentioned by Francis O’Neill). As well as musical dynasties like the Carneys of Irishtown and the travelling Rainey’s, County Mayo can boast such noted pipers as Michael Egan, Michael Wallace, Tom Killeen, Pat Nally and Joe Shannon. Most, however, remain obscure figures. Ironically those who emigrated are better documented. The latter include Thomas Garoghan’s teacher, Patsy Touhey’s teacher and an associate of the Taylor brothers – all three hailing from the same East Mayo parish. 

The talk will take place in 15 Henrietta Street, Dublin 1 and will start at 8:30pm on Thursday 18th November 2021. Admission is €10 (concession rate €5). Tickets are available through Eventbrite or contact the office at info@pipers.ie or by phone +353 01 87 30093.  For those unable to attend in person, It will also be live streamed through our channel NPU-TV.
