  • On behalf of the County Antrim Section we hope that everyone enjoyed the Festival & Pipe Band Championships yesterday in the lovely setting once again in Glenarm Castle . The weather started of cool and windy in the morning and got slightly better as the day progressed, but as the finale got closer the weather turned for the worst and we had to make some late changes. Unfortunately we had to cancel our new event for the senior Drum majors of Tossing the mace over the high bar ,but weather conditions hindered this great event 
  • The section would like to take this opportunity and thank our sponsors for this event All Things Tartan & The Quiet Man Irish Whiskey.We would like to thank everyone who helped in any way who made these championships successful along side the Dalradia Festival .
  • The section would like to thank all bands ,drum majors,Stewart's,judges,caterers,i personally could not thank the bands and drum majors and judges enough for their support ,and a special thanks to Paula for her help ,a big thanks also to the main man on the day our compere Gary Wilson 👌👌👌👌👍👍👍👍
  • We once again wish all bands,drum majors all the best for the rest of the season and that they bring silverware back from the remaining Major Championships
