Piobairi Chumann na Meirleach

Piobairi Chumann na Meirleach, the Felons Pipe Band, is approaching its second year on the road and is preparing for this year's Easter Commemoration in Belfast. 1997 saw the band lead both the Easter parade and the annual Bodenstown parade to the Wolfe Tone Memorial. As well as taking part in numerous commemorations and similar events, several pipers also participated in the recent production of Binlids.

Thanks to the dedication of the band members and the continued association with the Irish Republican Felons it has been a hugely successful year. Thanks also to those in the Republican community who have helped to get Piobairi Chumann na Meirleach on the road, their help with fund raising, musical tuition and general support.

Given the importance of the 1798 commemorations Piobairi plans to make the coming year even better and aim to be the premier band of the Republican movement. To this end the search goes on for new members, both pipers and drummers. No musical experience is necessary, but people must have dedication and maturity. Anyone who is 18 and interested should come along to practice on either a Sunday or Monday at the Felons Club between 7 and 9pm.
