For anyone out there looking for a hand made whistle Patrick is making wonderful handcrafted flutes and whistles, from wood. Usually he makes these to order but may sometimes have instruments in stock. He plays his own instruments as proof of their quality. A variety of tropical and native hard-woods are used : eg Yew, Holly, Boxwood, Apple, Olive, Damsonwood, also Ebony, Cocobolo, Rosewood, Mopane etc. The native varieties are often sourced locally and cut by Patrick himself. Most other timbers are selected from The Woodshed, in Antrim.
Patrick is also an accomplished musician; uillean piper, bagpiper, whistle and flute player and is starting to gain experince as a singer and guitar player.
