This weekend, the Millstreet Pipe Band played the Centenary Commemoration of the Easter 1916 Rising, but in Easter 1966, the Millstreet Pipe Band held pride of place at the 50th anniversary of the 1916 Rising in Tralee. There’s a video of it in the RTÉ archives. Click here to watch the 1966 video.
In it, the band are seen marching and playing at 1:22, 2:45, and 3:14, but unfortunately there is no sound.
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”

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.
LTV2 Millstreet Programme 235 is now online right here on millstreet.ie or on the LTV2 Facebook Page or you can tune in on your TV this Sunday Evening Mar 23 at 8.00pm
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.

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:
Millstreet Pipe Band would like to sincerely thank all those who supported & contributed so generously to their recent Church Gate Collection at Millstreet and Ballydaly. The continued support is very much appreciated. We thank Marie Twomey for the much appreciated updates of Millstreet Pipe Band. (S.R.)
Millstreet Pipe Band will be holding their Church Gate Collection this forthcoming weekend, 24th and 25th September 2011. Established over 60 years this is one voluntary group which deserves the most generous of supports when one considers how privileged we are in Millstreet to have such a musical treasure which always adds so much and gives such a sense of occasion to a huge variety of events on such a very regular and consistent basis. And we have also just become aware that the ladies in the Pipe Band will be taking part in the Cork Mini Marathon where they will be fundraising for different charities including COPE, The Irish Heart Foundation, Motor Neuron & The Lifeboat Association. Your generous support to this weekend’s collection would be greatly appreciated.
It certainly was a wonderful night to remember at the Dromhall Hotel in Killarney on Saturday, 26th March 2011 when Millstreet Pipe Band celebrated its 60th Anniversary in a truly grand style. The occasion was superbly co-ordinated by various members of the renowned Band. Marie Twomey had prepared a magnificent audio-visual presentation on the history of the famous Band. Here we invite you to view a selection of images we took on the splendid occasion when [read more …] “Millstreet Pipe Band’s Night to Remember at 60th Celebrations in Killarney”
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?
