Cork County Council in assocation with Creative Ireland and with the support Malllow Chamber of Commerce is planning a Pipe Bands gathering at Mallow Castle on the afternoon of Easter Monday, April 2nd.
The first Pipe Band Gathering at Mallow Castle took place on Easter Monday 2017 and based on the positive feedback from members of the public and from the bands that took part we have decided to run a similar event this year.
While the programme is currently being finalised, it is anticipated that the Pipe Bands will gather at St. Mary’s Church at 2.30pm to form up for the massed bands parade through Thomas Davis (Main) Street in the Town to Mallow Castle.
A feature of the event will be a massed bands performance in which some well know band tunes will be performed. Individual bands will perform from 3pm to approx 5pm culminating in a massed Bands performance at 5.30pm approx.
While a numbe rof Pipe Bands have already committed to attending on the day, Cork County Council would be delighted to welcome more bands to Mallow to take part in this wonderful event.
If you are involved in a Pipe Band and would like to participate, please contact Ian McDonagh, Arts Officer, Cork County Council on Tel. 021 4276891 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
