Sean Faloon Interview

Episode 28 – Sean Faloon and his family have been piping for generations in Ireland, all the while keeping with the music. He was the first Pipe Major to win in 1st grade in Scotland in the early 70s. Also his family organised a well-known piping competition in the Fort Bar in Dungannon otherwise known as the ‘Pat Faloon’ where great hospitality is enjoyed by all. Lots more besides!
