I missed seeing when this excellent video was posted by Tommy English about the 75th anniversary last year. Enjoy seeing the highlights of the anniversary celebrations.
Some nice videos from John Kenny as Dooagh Pipe Band plays through Pollagh and on down the Brae. Enjoy!
In 2022, St. Patrick’s Pipe Band, Dooagh, Achill will celebrate 75 years in existence. To celebrate this significant milestone, the pipe band have established a steering committee to organise a number of events and to put in place some lasting memorials.
Each year the pipe band relies on the generosity of people in Achill on St. Patrick’s Day to meet the significant cost of running the pipe band and we are eternally grateful for that.
We know the disappointment that many have felt over the past two St. Patrick’s Days and that is why we are determined to make 2022 a real celebration of history, music, culture and pride our unique traditions.
We hope that you can give whatever you can in order to make St. Patrick’s Day 2022 a memorable one for all.
Go raibh míle maith agaibh go léir.
