Clare pit-stop for Reels on Wheels


NPU_Cycle_Poster_AW_HRNa Píobairí Uilleann (NPU), the Society of Uilleann Pipers, are to undertake a 250km fundraising sponsored cycle from Dublin to Clare.

Held over two days from Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th July and aimed at cyclists of all abilities, an overnight stop in Birr, Co. Offaly affords the opportunity for some great music and plenty of sport before arriving into Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare to coincide with the start of Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy.

The Reels on Wheels Challenge builds on the funds raised over the last five years for NPU’s Sharing the Sound of Ireland programme and supports great projects such as the uilleann pipemaking training programme at NPU’s PipeCraft Training Centre, Clonshaugh, Dublin 17.

Since opening the PipeCraft Centre NPU have delivered training to over 140 people on a variety of courses including 10 people from throughout Ireland who recently completed a full time three year course in the craft.
