Gilnahirk Pipe Band

Formed 1919

Bring it On!

Happy New Year to all our friends, family and fans!

2012 was something of a mixed bag for the Band with some disappointing results in the contests attended, but the year drew to an end with much better news and considerable anticipation of what 2013 will bring.

We finish 2012 with new Pipe Major Ricky Newell who has a proven track record of success, an energised drum corps led by Gilnahirk stalwart, Stevie Hoy, and plans to develop the Band even more.

Before January is out, the Band will have hosted its first ever Burns Night (and we will be letting you all know more details on that shortly) and will also be participating in other celebrations of a similar nature in the early part of the year.

The increasing numbers in our ranks have left us with a rather pleasant dilemma - not enough uniforms to fit all the players! As a result, the Band is currently examining the possibility of new uniforms - including a change to the tartan. Again, our internet followers will be amongst the first to know when/if any decision is taken, so watch this space! Don't worry, whatever we do, we will remain distinctive!

All in all, 2013 looks like it has potential to be a great year to be in Gilnahirk Pipe Band, so drop us a line and come join us!
