May I just say a HUGE thank you to you guys for what was a great send off for John. For you guys that were able to travel to Leicester, giving up your precious time we shared so many memories laughing and crying at the same time and for those of you who could not be there in body you were certainly there in spirit....... Johnny would have been so proud that his mates came down to share his life with family and friends and to raise a glass. I have to say it was heart wrenching when you played us to the crematorium and then at church, your harmonizing in church was as good as ever and the to play us all down to the Shires. I have videos of you playing in the bar and have shed many a tear when replaying....Johnny was there in spirit believe me. Thank you all so much

Huge thanks to Bill Hennessy and the boys who came down to Leicester give my dad John a splendid send off. It was fantastic to hear stories from tours when dad played with the band, and going through old photos.

Great to see the band continuing to go from strength to strength after so many years.

Just spent a couple of hours going through the band photos, brought back some great memories.Wonderful friendships made and maintained throughout our lives, the early photos are a reminder of the brilliant lads who started this fantastic band off, they would be so proud of the way you have brought the band back to such strength. I enjoyed the two visits you made to the cricket club last year, the stories become funnier as time goes by, work permitting I hope to be there on the 14th.
Best wishes to all, Tony.

Webmaster's reply : Hi Tony,
Many thanks for your kind words. As one who had the good fortune to be a member of the band at the same time as you, I have very fond memories of some very happy moments, particularly the first trip to Cobh, Co. Cork, where you were the life and soul of the festival. It's always a pleasure to see you and we look forward to meeting up on the 14th.

Great photos. Pity there are no names on them. I only recognised a few people . Happy memories of walking with the band as a dancer with my two sisters. We also met the band on one of their many visits to Blackwater when we were on holiday near to where my dad came from (Enniscorthy).

Webmaster's reply : Hello Geraldine,
Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you enjoyed looking at the photos. I like your idea of putting names to the photos. I'll look into how best to do this and, hopefully, I'll be able to include a naming functionality in future photo galleries.
Many thanks for your continued support for the Band.
Kind regards,

We had the pleasure of a visit from the band lately, and may I say, Falcarragh didn't know what hit it...you were the highlight of our Festifál...hope to see you all again soon. Thanks.

Webmaster's reply : Hi Rose,
Thanks for your message in our Guest Book. I must say that the feeling is totally mutual! We will never forget the wonderful people of Falcarragh and the welcome you gave us in your beautiful town. Hope to see you all again very soon. Many, many thanks to one and all.
