Are there any black Irish pipers, or indeed any black Irish traditional musicians in Ireland?

There are young players of various ethnicities, born in Ireland or arrived very young, who are going through the school system and just like everybody else learning music. I have seen young black pipers, Asian concertina players, black whistle players and brush dancers. Like the other local kids, it's a wait and see who will stick with it in the longer run (beyond the mid to late teens, which seems to be a critical age) but they are there and playing at a young age, and playing well too.
