The 17th annual Irish Piobaireachd Society contest was held on Saturday, January 25th in Mitchelstown Co. Cork in the shadow of the Kilworth Hills. The event is going from strength to strength and attracted players from all over Ireland and from Scotland. The event included a piobaireachd workshop partly sponsored by the Cork County Council Arts Department.
Adjudicator Tom Spiers of Edinburgh commented on the high quality of the bagpipe sound in all grades.
Certainly a date for the calendar the event will return to Mitchelstown on February 7th, 2015.
