Hi I’m looking for a fiddle for my teenage daughter and was told there was a fiddle maker based in Tipperay.I think he’s name is Michael Allen but I am unable to get any contact information for him.If anybody can pass on he’s contact details I would appreciate it.

There are others. A google search for "violin makers in Ireland" reveals several on the first page, including James Beatley and Paul Bradley, both of whom learnt their craft at the Newark School of Violin Making.
You could also contact an university music department for recommendations.
