Millstreet Pipe Band’s Night to Remember at 60th Celebrations in Killarney

It certainly was a wonderful night to remember at the Dromhall Hotel in Killarney on Saturday, 26th March 2011 when Millstreet Pipe Band celebrated its 60th Anniversary in a truly grand style.   The occasion was superbly co-ordinated by various members of the renowned Band.   Marie Twomey had prepared a magnificent audio-visual presentation on the history of the famous Band.    Here we invite you to view a selection of images we took on the splendid occasion when excellent speeches were made by Tim O’Shea, Brendan O’Sullivan and Liam Coffey while John Hickey and Marie Twomey acted as marvellous MCs and called upon the various Band Members to accept a very beautiful memento of Artwork on Slate (created by Kate O’Keeffe).   Eily Buckley and Margaret Bourke made a presentation on behalf of Millstreet Community Council.    “The Kelt” (Connie Linehan, Tom Flahive & Pat Bucke) provided a fantastic  night of wonderful music and dance.  Fr. Paddy O’Byrne and Fr. John Fitzgerald, P.P. said Grace before and after the delicious meal.   John Tarrant covered for the Press while Brendan Murphy recorded for LTV2.  Definitely a night to remember.   Sincere Congratulations to Millstreet Pipe Band and every success in the years ahead.     You have always brought such a wonderful sense of occasion to so many varied and historic events.  (S.R.)

  1. It looks like you all had a great night in Killarney. Looking at the photos brought back some fantastic memories of when I played in the band and reminds me of members past, present and those no longer with us. Best wishes to all.

  2. Just looking at all the photos and great to see Liam and Tim looking so well. With my brother Willie we had some great days and nights with the Band. I will always havw happy memories of the time some of us went to the twinning as well as all the Munster finals. One of those in Killareny was particularly memorable as we did not get our lines exactly straight and we will always remeber it as the snake march!!
    Best wishes to all
