"So many men who were geniuses worked away in solitude and their hard-won knowledge and skill died with them. If we are to succeed this must not be allowed to continue."- Seán Reid 1968.
Seán Reid society is dedicated in trying to learn more about the
music, history and science of the Irish Union or Uilleann pipes. It is
a registered charitable institution. We are trying to make certain that
the knowledge we have attained since Seán Reid made the statement
above is not lost, and that it is published for the use of all with an
interest in this most remarkable and advanced musical instrument. The Society
publishes both an occasional newsletter and a periodic Journal in multimedia
format which is distributed to members.
