Thiepval Memorial Pipe Band

The Thiepval Memorial Pipe Band  from Convoy, Co. Donegal make the trip to Portglenone each year to compete in the Pipe Band Competition at the festival and they are delighted to be performing on our main concert stage at the 2010 festival. Led by Pipe Major, Alison McKnight they have enjoyed many successes at their grade holding titles at the Ulster, All Ireland, Scottish, British, European and World Championships. In addition to this they were also winners at the Cowal Championships; they are the Northern Ireland Champion of Champions and also the Scotland Supreme Champion of Champions. The band’s drum core have won titles at major championships and the band as a whole have achieved tremendous success at various competitions throughout the north of Ireland. We look forward to welcoming them to the main stage at Gig’n the Bann!
