Below, the Irish Guards.


The Four photos below were sent by Austrailan warpipers Tracey and Rod. They both play beautiful sets of pipes turned in the Irish style.





Below is the Thomas Davis Pipe Band of Mallow, co Cork in 1924. A mix of two and three droned pipes. The band could not yet afford the saffron kilts that would later be worn.


The three photos below are of the O'Neil Warpipers. This group was seen performing at many Gaelic Athletic Association events and various Nationalist meetings in Antrim and other counties in the very early 1900's.




Below are three pictures of the Rory Og O'Moore Warpipe Band of Glascow Scotland in 1914. They performed at Celtic Park in support of the Celtic Football Club. I want to thank Eileen Breen for contacting me and her cousin John McElroy for giving permission to use them on this site only. Any other use must have the permission of John as they are from his private family collection.





Above, an excellent set owned by Tim Sullivan of
Gloucester, Ma.They were made in Belfast by McCulloch. The original bag cover is also shown in the picture. My thanks to tim for use of the picture.


Notice how far apart the drones are. For some odd reason this was a popular thing in the early 1900's.
