What's the difference between an Irish piper and a Scottish piper?

There is little difference in the actual instrument. Bagpipes are very popular in both cultures. The uniforms and choice of songs are the most obvious difference. Some people also prefer the traditional uilleann pipes, which are considered more of an Irish sounding instrument.
