This video shot at Pollagh Church shows how desperate the conditions were on this St. Patrick’s Day. Much respect to the band for continuing to play in such conditions. The spectators appreciated the effort shown by all the bands on the day.

The process of organising the photos for the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day parade gallery is ongoing. In the meantime, some photos will be posted occasionally until the gallery is complete.
The site had some issues after a break-in. After installing new security features and cleaning out old and unused files, the site is back to normal. Apologies for the interruption in service.
5 days to go!
10 days to go until St. Patrick’s Day 2017. I realised yesterday that I had taken some photos from the Achill Sound Parade last year and it would be a good time to get everybody in the mood by publishing them. Let’s hope that conditions are somewhat as good as last year’s perfect conditions.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
I am happy to announce that the gallery for 2016 is now complete from my collection. Enjoy the gallery with memories of a fantastic day for the parade.
Progress continues on getting the photos of the 2016 St. Patrick’s Day parade online. The first batch is now ready featuring images from early morning in Dooagh.
To celebrate the momentous occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Dooagh National School Band 1966-2016, The Dooagh Pipe Band have decided to host a night of celebration with Music, Raffle, Slideshow and Finger Food on Easter Monday 28th March at 9pm in Lourdie’s, Dooagh following the School Band’s Historic march in Newport earlier that day. (No charge/donation required).
I’ll post some photos from this event later but in the meantime, enjoy those photos that were posted on the Dooagh Pipe Band on Facebook.
