From the Belfast Telegraph: "Martin Preshaw received the prestigious £9,000 prize from Prince Charles at an awards ceremony last Thursday in St James Palace, London.

The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (Quest) awards funding to a small number of artisans each year to help sustain traditional crafts.

Mr Preshaw, one of the finest uilleann pipe-makers in the world, has custom-made instruments for musicians across the globe from his workshop in the Enniskillen lakelands, his home since 2007."

The set of Uillean Bagpipes that was submitted for review was the April 2015 Easter B 3/4 Set.
