Gilnahirk Pipe Band

Formed 1919

Happy New Year - and Roll on 2012!

The Band would like to wish all our friends and supporters a very Happy New Year - and we hope that you all had a great Christmas break.

2011 was a good year for Gilnahirk, although not without its challenges. The Band made it back to the competition arena and we have a firm foundation on which to build for next year. Indeed, we should have a few exciting developments to announce over the coming months and hope that you will all keep checking back with us here or on Facebook for news.

Provided that we can all still fit into our kilts after the Christmas indulgence, the next outing for the Band will be at the Willowfield Parish Church Burns Night, which is to be held in the Church on My Lady's Road on Friday 27 January 2012. This is always a very well attended and enjoyable event - so why not come along and see us?

As the Band continues to build, we are still on the lookout for new members. If you already follow us on Facebook, you may have noticed that a few people have contacted us through there with enquiries about joining and/or learning. That is just one of the ways to get in touch - if you want to make direct contact, just drop us a line over there or email us at join[AT] The more the merrier!
