The Mid-Ulster Section held a presentation evening for Senior World Champion Alicia Dickson, Drum Major with the Matt Boyd Memorial Pipe Band.  Alicia was crowned Senior World Champion in Glasgow in August and Section Secretary presented Alicia with a mace as her gift to mark her achievement in Glasgow earlier this year.

Gloria Aicken stated it is not only an honour to Alicia and her family but to the Mid-Ulster Section as well.

The draw for the Mid-Ulster Championships Cookstown is now available as attached and also under the upcoming events - just click on the Mid-Ulster Championships.

With only one single entrant for Grade one, we are delighted that the current Grade One World Champion's St Laurence O'Toole are still supporting the section and will be in attendance to entertain the crowds with a number of selections. The band will perform for approximately 20 mins (more details will follow).

Drum Majors dress will commence at 11.30am.  The first band will play at 12 noon.

We can only hope that the weather will be kind to us now.  See you all on the 11th.
