Help Us to Share the Sound of Ireland

Support our Sharing the Sound of Ireland Campaign

We need your support to get young players started on the Uilleann Pipes through our programme of Access, Education, Performance and Preservation. Your support also takes us one step closer to achieving our goal to create a world class Sound of Ireland Centre next door on the site of 16 Henrietta Street.

Regular monthly donations can be made at varying amounts of €21, €50 or €100. For a one off donation, select custom amount. All donations are greatly appreciated. 


If you are resident and pay tax in Ireland, Na Píobairí Uilleann can also benefit from a tax refund in respect of donations in a year over €250.   Here’s how it works - Na Píobairí Uilleann benefit from a tax refund in respect of donations of a Revenue-designated amount of €250 or more. Simply complete the Cert and return it together with your donation. Alternatively you can call us on 01-8730093 with your credit card. NPU receive an additional €112 towards our campaign for every €250 you donate with no additional cost to you. Even if you contributed to another organisation this year or if you contributed last year, you can still make another Tax-Effective donation to NPU. Making a Tax-Effective donation does not affect your usual tax arrangements in any way, whether they are via a personal tax return, pension scheme or through your employer and you don't need to do anything other than complete the form.

You can also make a tax-effective donation by setting up an automatic monthly donation of just €21. Your monthly donation can also yield an additional €112 per year to NPU. If you run a business, a corporate donation of €250 or more qualifies for tax relief in your company's annual return. Please also consider making copies of the CHY4 Cert for friends and relations or encouraging your employer to make a tax-effective donation. PLEASE FORWARD YOUR COMPLETED CERTIFICATE TO More information here.
