Members of the Cullen Pipe Band playing for the Arrival of the first transatlantic flight from Boston to Cork on July 4th Cork Airport. A momentous occasion, which hopefully will help open up more opportunity for the Cork Region.
All money raised goes towards the
running costs of the pipe band and is
very much appreciated.

Congratulations to Millstreet Pipe Band who were awarded the prize of Best Marching Band at the Killarney St.Patrick’s Day Parade.

St.Patrick’s Day is always very busy for Millstreet Pipe Band. On Tuesday they started early at Ballydaly mass, followed by Millstreet mass at 11:30, followed by the Killarney Parade at 2pm, and finally back to the Millstreet Parade at 5pm.
Now our Pipe Band always play during St.Patrick’s Day mass in St.Patrick’s Church Millstreet, so when it was mentioned the week before that they would be played again this year, I was happy because it’s always nice, but didn’t take extra special notice of it.
But … what they played as the reflection after communion turned out to be something unexpectedly special. It started with a number of pipers playing from the altar, but then the church organ started to play at the opposite end of the church, and as the musicians played, for a few precious minutes as the low bass vibrations of the organ and the pipers passed through us, everyone was enthralled by beauty and emotion of the moment, as the hairs stood on the back of our necks … and it was of course followed by a rapturous applause. Truly, a moment not to be forgotten. [read more …] “Something Special”

As is tradition, Millstreet Pipe Band will Ring in the New Year in the Square this evening (Wednesday December 31st) at 8pm.
It would be nice to see people come together for this … and it looks like being dry too!
Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die. [read more …] “Ring out the Old, and Ring in the New”
Millstreet Pipe Band played at the Cork Senior Football Championship Final in Páirc Uí Chaoimh between Ballincollig and Carbery Rangers today in front of a crowd of over 10,000. The last County Final before the stadium is redeveloped.
To receive reception one needs to retune analogue settings (available in menu “settings”). When scanning is complete one will now have the new channel – either UHF Channel 30 or UHF Channel 35 (or both in certain areas of Millstreet). All this depends on how strong the signal is in any given area. The UHF Channel 30 signal comes from the Carriganima direction whereas the UHF Channel 35 signal comes from the western side of Millstreet Town. This is now saved and is presently transmitting the EWTN (Religious) Channel.
