Mickey now offers the next generation pipers inspiration through his play and his generosity with his other musical skills. He is a sought-after and a welcome appearance on tumors (a meeting of Uilleann pipers) around the world.

Mickey & # 39; s first Uillean pipe CD was The Limerick Lassie, widely praised as a unique and masterful piping experience. Copies are available from Na Piopairi Uillean in Dublin. The new Thin CD Legacy contains Mickey with daughters Brid and Niamh in a sincere gratitude to all who preceded them. It provides an insight into the unique contributions that Dunne's current offering offers to the dynamic and ever-changing traditional music art.
Mickey studied the art of making Uillean under the tutelage of the legendary Cillian O & # 39; Briain. He now produces quality chanters, practice set and half sets in his hometown in Caherconlish County, Limerick. Mickey Dunne is chairman of the Thomond Pipers Club in Limerick, an organization that has recently been re-established after a century.
