Tiarnán is an award winning Uilleann Piper from Monaghan who started playing the Uilleann Pipes when he was around nine years of age in The Armagh Pipers Club.
"I went to see a piper I know, Tiarnán Ó Duinchinn from Monaghan, he was fantastic. But it was amazing, Way back in 1964, I was listening to Willie Clancy, in a similar situation at a fleadh in Scariff and I was weeping with emotion and I actually shed a tear when Tiarnan played as well. I thought, this is amazing. » Andy Irvine
