We thank Margaret and John Kelleher of Mount Leader, Millstreet for sharing with us a wonderful historic image of the Tóstal in Millstreet c.1957 where a very large number of Pipe Bands visited Millstreet on the occasion. I was six years old and can recall the huge excitement there was throughout the town and of course the splendid musical sound of the various Bands. Our image from a Ballybunion publication shows the Ballybunion Pipe Band pictured at The Square, Millstreet. Please note Tom Radley’s Forge with the wheel against the front wall.

The best of luck to Kevin Crowley who has been picked at win back (#7) on the Cork team to play Kerry in the Munster Senior Football Championship Final tomorrow Sunday 2nd July in Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney @ 2pm has been announced as follows.

Also, it will be ‘extra special‘ for the Millstreet Pipe Band who will lead out the teams in the pre match parade at Fitzgerald Stadium for the first time in many years.
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. Pictured are Michelle Keogh and Maureen Kenny Coffey, Millstreet Pipe Band, with Derek Daly, Dalys Supervalu, Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce President Kate O’Leary and Mayor of Killarney John Joe Culloty at the St. Patrick’s Festival Killarney parade prizegiving function in The International Hotel on Tuesday night.

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”
