Leading the Parade at the Hazel Grove Carnival Fianna Phadraig Pipe Band proud to support local charity fundraiser
A word from
Éamon de Valera
 
After the initial, somewhat fortuitous encounter with the Irish President, outside Dublin's Kilmainham Gaol in 1966 (see "Conquering the Continent"), Terry and the lads were honoured to receive a letter of congratulation signed Éamon de Valera, on the occasion of the Band's 21st anniversary. The letter takes pride of place among the trophies and awards the Band has received throughout its long history.
