Can I select the tunes performed on the day?

Yes, when the booking is confirmed, the piper will call you to discuss the tunes you wish to have played. He can also assist with suggestions if needed. All of our pipers have a wide knowledge of the most popular and appropriate tunes to match any occasion.

What are the most requested tunes at funerals?

The Coolin, The Fields of Athenry, Danny Boy and Amazing Grace are among the most popular. These are only examples and the choice of tunes is at the discretion of the booker.

What's the difference between an Irish uilleann piper and an ordinary bagpiper?

They are two very different instruments. The uilleann pipes have a more Celtic/Irish sound to them and more for clients looking for a particularly Irish flavour. Bagpipes also have a very strong tradition in both Irish and Scottish cultures. The bagpiper also wears an Irish or Scottish kilt and regalia.

Do you also supply Irish bagpipers?

Yes we do. Bagpiper information can be found on our dedicated page.

I'd like someone to sing at the funeral, can you help?

How is my booking confirmed and paid for?

Full details of the booking and payment process can be found on our fees page.

Can I go and hear the piper perform before I book him?

That's a bit tricky as most of our pipers engagements are at private functions. You can hear sampler tracks of our main piper playing here. You can also rest assured that our reputation is very important to us. We have a vested interest in supplying only the best pipers available. Find feedback from previous bookers here.

How far ahead do I need to make a booking?

There's no set time but it's always best to book up as far ahead as possible. We do however, often arrange bookings at short notice. Funeral bookings for pipers are often taken within a few of days of the event.

I may also need an Irish band or an Irish disco, can you arrange it all for me?

Yes! We can provide an Irish band, Irish dancers or Irish disco. We can also provide a PA for hire at the function if required.

Where can I find your terms and conditions?

Just follow this link!

Lots of our clients who hire a piper for a funeral, also book an Irish music act for the Wake afterwards. We have lots of excellent Irish solo acts, duos and bands that can be found here.

What about vat?

Vat does not apply in the vast majority of cases. This is because very few acts are over the vat threshold that incurs vat liability. In the very rare case that this does not apply, we will tell you at the time of booking.

  • Your quoted fee will be inclusive of travel, where applicable.
  • The agency fee is also included.
  • There are NO hidden extras or surprises!

Are acts insured?

Conditional to any act working via our agency is that they have full public liablilty insurance. A copy of a booked acts PLI certificate is available upon request via PDF when booking.

For peace of mind, all bookings are subject to written contract. The full details of your booking, playing times, the fee and any specific requirements will be included. Our terms and conditions can be found here.
