Ireland and beyond, having travelled on numerous occasions to
Scotland, England, Wales, France, Germany, Holland, Belgium,
Spain, Italy and the United States of America.
band has participated in many contests over the 50+ years of its
existence and indeed has many victories and trophies to its
credit. However, our band is primarily a performance band and,
as such, our members participate at various charity, cultural
and sporting events,
festivals, welcoming guests of honour / VIPs, weddings and
funerals in a number of musical ensembles. Indeed, whatever
the requirement, our members add a sense of occasion, festive or
solemn as appropriate, in a dignified and professional manner
not often associated with modern youth.
