Pipe Band 60th Celebrations

Millstreet Pipe Band will be having a 60th Anniversary Celebration at the Dromhall Hotel, Killarney, Co. Kerry on March 26th 2011, with music on the night by the Kelt.

This is an opportunity for the Millstreet Community & for past members to join in with the celebrations of the band.

This Patrick’s Day marks 60 years playing in the Millstreet St.Patricks Day Parade, and that 60 years is a huge achievement because it is 60 years of unbroken service, the kind of which is rarely seen these days.

There are two members of the first Se.Patricks Day Parade still playing in the band for the 60th Parade this year. Is this a record, for 60 years of unbroken service?
