There, he got a job working for the Corporation Parks Department. His major inspirations as a piper were Phil Martin, whom he saw playing at a feıs in Rosslea, and Leo Rowsome. In addition to being a fine player, McAloon eventually became a respected pipe repairer and a highly regarded reed-maker. He produced about twenty sets of the instrument in his lifetime.
