Pipe Bands are invariably associated with Scotland or the Scottish emigration areas. Much less known is that Pipe Bands in Ireland also can count on a solid piping tradition.
The fascinating story of the Irish presence in Flanders during WW1 is tragically almost forgotten. As a reminder of the dramatic efforts of the Irish troops in our region, our band follows the tradition of the Irish Guards, the 16th (Irish) and 36th (Ulster) Divisions, and has chosen as its mascot, the same impressive breed which at that time was brought over by the boys from the Emerald Isle: the Irish Wolfhound.
At this time the band has two mascots : Magnus and Paddy.
