I know most players of Irish Traditional Music (ITM) prefer the Jeffries system since it has the extra C#, but who are some of the top players using the Wheatstone/Lachenal system?

As far as I can remember,
Chris Droney plays Wheatstone.
Jacqueline McCarthy once played 24-button Wheatstone (now Dipper).
Hugh Healy played Wheatstone in his album.
Mary MacNamara played Wheatstone in her first album.
In the recent ICA interview(CW472) Noel Hill said that he has three Linotas.
Mrs Crotty played Lachenal (and inherited to Michael Tubridy).
Kitty Hayes played Lachenal.
Cormac Begley plays piccolo Lachenal.
But I may be wrong. Experts comments welcomed.

I'm not a good player but have been doodling around for some years. I played all the notes I needed to on my Wheatstone system Connor. I recently got a 34 button Dipper and find I end up using the same old buttons as I did on my Wheatstone. My teacher who is an excellent world class recording artist occasionally would take my Connor in hand to show me something. It worked just fine. I think you get used to what you have. Doesn't Noel Hill play a Wheatstone? Or didn't he used to back in the day?
