In Castlebar we are lucky to have a wonderful Town Band/Orchestra. They play at lots of local events during the year and give great enjoyment to the entire Castlebar community in the process. They have just returned from the US where they played for the annual Saint Patrick's Day Mass in St. Patrick's Cathedral and (of course!) they subsequently led the New York St. Patrick's Day parade too!
And, to think, they all probably started out playing O'Donnell Abu on a tin whistle at school!
