Píobaireacht – Piping (Bagpipes)
Scoil Acla is delighted to announce that Terry Tully will join our ranks as a piping tutor for 2019. The original Scoil Acla summer school was established in 1910 for the teaching of the Irish language; the teaching of Piping (Irish War Pipes, which have two drones as opposed to three) and the promotion of music, dance, song, and culture generally.
The new class will be taught by Terry Tully whose name is synonymous within piping circles. Terry boasts many accomplishments as both a solo piper and as former pipe major of the world-renowned St. Lawrence O’Toole Pipe Band which competes regularly at the very highest level.
There will be very limited space for this course which will be aimed at pipers wishing to improve their technical piping skills. Students will be expected to have a strong grasp of piping ie. at least two to three years experience piping. This new course will be a fantastic opportunity to learn from a master piper.
