Éamonn Ceannt was a skilled Uilleann Piper and founding member of the Dublin Pipers’ Club.

Sárphíobaire Uillinn agus duine de bhunaitheoirí Chumann Píobairí Bhaile Átha Cliath a bhí in Éamonn Ceannt.

The origins of the Dublin Pipers’ Club are tied up with the Literary Revival, which focused interest on all aspects of Irish culture including music. The National Literary Revival that began during the closing decade of the nineteenth century heralded the birth of the Gaelic League, the Feis Ceoil and the Dublin Pipers’ Club. Many members of the Pipers’ Club had dual membership of the Gaelic League and later of the Irish Volunteers.

Ceannt was secretary of the Club until he retired on his marriage to the treasurer, Áine Brennan. Members of Na Píobairí Uilleann will perform traditional airs and tunes with an accompanying presentation on the history of the Dublin Pipers’ Club and Na Píobairí Uilleann. Bilingual presentation as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge.

Bhí nasc an-láidir idir Cumann Píobairí Bhaile Átha Cliath agus gluaiseacht Athbheochan Litríochta na hÉireann, inar díríodh ar chuile ghné de chultúr na hÉireann, an ceol ina measc. Spreag an Athbheochan Litríochta Náisiúnta, a tháinig chun cinn ag deireadh na naoú haoise déag, bunú Chonradh na Gaeilge, An Fheis Cheoil, agus Chumann Píobairí Bhaile Átha Cliath. Ba bhaill iad go leor de lucht Chumann na bPíobairí de Chonradh na Gaeilge agus níos faide anonn d’Óglaigh na hÉireann.

Bhí Ceannt ina rúnaí ar an gCumann go dtí lá a phósta ar an gcisteoir, Áine Brennan. Seinnfidh baill de Na Píobairí Uilleann fonn traidisiúnta agus beidh cur i láthair ann leis ar stair Chumann Píobairí Bhaile Átha Cliath agus Na bPíobairí Uilleann. Cur i láthair dhátheangach mar pháirt de Sheachtain na Gaeilge.
