He was performer, manufacturer and teacher of the uilleann pipes - the complete master of his instrument. He devoted his entire life to the uilleann pipes..Leo was born in Harold's Cross, Dublin in 1903. His father, William realised that his son had the ability to become a talented musician and craftsman. Constantly watching his father making and repairing instruments, Leo learned the art of pipe making and instrument repair.
