Millstreet Pipe Band was established in 1950 and have enhanced so many wonderful historic, cultural and sporting events since then with its very distinctive sound. It’s uplifting to note the entry of many young members to the Band. Great credit is due to the founder members and those who have been in the Band since the 1950s. The Band had been so very loyal to its participation in such annual occasions as the ringing in of the New Year, St. Patrick’s Day parades, Corpus Christi Processions, various events at Green Glens, many sporting occasions, Béal na mBláth Commemoration and many more events.
