Hugh O’Keeffe

On Saturday the 15th August 2009 the Cullen Pipe Band under the Pipe Major of Con Houlihan took part in the World Pipe Band Championships 2009 held in Glasgow Scotland. The band competed against 29 other bands from all over the World in Grade 3A. All members competed brilliantly and the band was rewarded with 6th place and was presented with the Corby Cup. Most members had been in Glasgow since the previous Wednesday the 12th of August in preparation for the weekend. Members took part in twice daily practices and this takes up a lot of dedication and effort so we thank all members for their great dedication and effort.

We also wish to thank all those who traveled over with the band to support them during the week. We also wish to thank those members who did not compete on Saturday but were present in other major completions during the year
