2017 – 70/20 – Site Refresh

If you visited the site in the last few weeks, the appearance hasn’t been as good as usual. From today, the site has a new theme in honour of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the band. Not to mention that the website has now been in existence for 20 years.

I think that the site is more attractive and easier to use. 

As usual, any comments or suggestions are welcome by email to paul@dooagh.com

The 2015 Dooagh Pipe Band Annual Dance at Gielty’s Bar and Restaurant is going to be held on Easter Saturday Night April 4th starting at 10pm! Come join us for a night of dancing, Craic & Ceol! I hope to get some photos and videos of the night.

More photos from the 2015 parade to come

Great news! I got sent some more photos of the St. Patrick’s Day parade courtesy of my sister-in-law Annette McNamara. I will put them together with the other photos from Catherine Keane and Carol Ann McNulty into one 2015 gallery.  Hopefully, it will be ready by the weekend.

Feel free to get in contact if you have any photos you would like featured on the site.

St. Patrick’s Day 2015 next Tuesday

Unfortunately, I am not able to be in Achill for St. Patrick’s Day this year so I won’t be able to take the usual photos from the parade.  I will try to get photos from other people. I would also encourage anyone to contact me with their own photos and I will be happy to post them on the site.

I can be contacted by email at paul@dooagh.com or in the comments below.

Have a great time if you are going!
