In 2021, there was no parade due to the circumstances in the world. However, the members of Dooagh Pipe Band on Achill Island played from their own houses all around the country and submitted their videos where members of the band put this video together.
The pipes did sound on St. Patrick’s Day in Achill in 2020. Here’s my Dad, brother and niece playing at acceptable social distance levels to mark the day.
New video of the band marching through Pollagh on St. Patrick’s Day.
