1960 NHL Final – Millstreet Pipe Band

Millstreet Pipe Band played at the 1960 National Hurling League Final between Cork and Tipperary (yes fifty two years ago). A video of the match is now on youTube and includes some footage of our Pipe Band.The drummer pictured above (at 0:34 in the video)  is Donal Lynch of Kippagh, husband of Julia, and whose son, Kevin is the well known button accordion player.   The Match took place in Cork Athletic Grounds (now Páirc Uí Chaoimh).   For this information – our sincere thanks to Tim O’Shea, Founder Member of Millstreet Pipe Band and still playing in mighty style!

We’d like to thank Ted Barrett for letting us know about the video which you can see below:
