Traditional Irish Music Links for Uilleann Pipes

Uileann pipes are bagpipes developed in Ireland. They are operated by squeezing a bellows held under and worked by the elbow. The name derives from the Irish píob (pipes) + uilleann (genitive singular of uillinn, meaning elbow). Also called: Irish pipes or union pipes.
