Lead Tenor


Roisin Carney is Lead Tenor and has been with the Clew Bay Pipe Band since its establishment. Roisin learned her trade from tenor drummers in the Achill Pipe Band, Erin Fadian and Rachel Knipe. In conjunction with Owen Mc Namara, she compiles tenor arrangements on all band tunes and sets.

During the months of May and June she has started giving tenor drum workshopsto the boys and girls in 3rd & 4th classes in Carrowholly National School. She hopes to establish a junior tenor section in September. Given the progress that has been made in the past few months, she is hopeful that some of these juniors will have a level of proficiency that will qualify them to join the senior band on St Patrick's Day 2014.

Roisin plays the tin whistle, piano and guitar. She has a Connacht Irish Dancing title to her name and with Katie Hogan, another member of the band, performs a two hand reel as part of the Band's Pipe- Versity Concert set list . Roisin attends the Sacred Heart School in Westport and is currently studying music for her Junior Cert
