Leading the Parade at the Hazel Grove Carnival Fianna Phadraig Pipe Band proud to support local charity fundraiser
A little history
 
65 years and more promoting Irish Pipe Band music in the Wythenshawe community, throughout the North West, nationwide and into Europe

Tracing the Band's history all the way back to the early days at St. John's, Benchill, is an ongoing project. There will necessarily be gaps to fill, dates to add, names to be placed on some of the faces. Our ultimate aim is to provide a pictorial account of a slice of history within our local community and the role played by the Band and its members in that history.

So we're counting on you, as current and former band members, or families and friends of the Band, to pass on any relevant information or photos you may have and help us reconstitute this history stretching over 65 years and more.


To contribute to this project, all you have to do is sign up to our website as a friend or former member of the Fianna Phádraig Pipe Band. Whenever you visit our website, you will be able to sign in and add any comments or information concerning the Band's history pages. We also plan to provide the possibility of uploading photos. All information provided will be checked before being added to relevant pages. We will, of course, acknowledge your contribution on our credits page.

 

Special thanks to Kev Parr for allowing us to use the wonderful photos of the Band and Dancers taken by his Dad, Tom Parr, during the early years. Check out Kev's website on http://www.kevparr.com.
