Teaching – NPU run classes, accessible to all, on a weekly basis in our premises in Dublin, and time-to-time in locations throughout Ireland. We support classes in other countries through the provision of teachers and other resources.

These are all devoted to promoting the playing, making or maintenance of the uilleann pipes. Several new items are published each year.
Website – Our online resource website ( ) already includes over 20,000 items, including music scores, films of performances, technical information, lectures, tutorials, sound files and images, all aimed at fostering understanding of our instrument, and excellence in performance. New material is added on a weekly basis.
Technical training – We have set up a dedicated, fully-equipped pipemaking training centre (PipeCraft, based in Clonshaugh, Dublin), and we are about to start full-time, three-year training courses designed to produce qualified pipemakers.
