Final Cut: Newport AOH Pipe & Drums In Dublin (Video)

By  |  0 Comments

Watch Newport, RI’s Ancient Order of Hibernians Pipe & Drum Band finish their “World Tour” in Ireland at the 100th Anniversary of the Easter Uprising.

Been there. Done that. Got the t-shirts…which are still available for sale if you’re interested.

That is where the AOH band sits, with their historic trip to Dublin, Ireland in the rear-view mirror. There were months of preparations, then weeks upon weeks of parades and performances, all leading up to a flight across the pond to perform with all the world’s Irish pipe and drum bands.

As best as we can tell, it’s been a bit like running a marathon, where there’s an awful lot of work and energy involved in doing something “for fun”.

The World Tour

You wouldn’t believe how far these folks have ventured, leaving sight of Newport and even Aquidneck Island. They ventured past the state border a number of times and we’re glad to say that all have returned without being gobbled up by sea serpents and the like.

If you’d like to commemorate this grand adventure, you still can, as their Booster has been re-opened.

You don’t want to be one left out next parade day because you don’t have any of this stylish attire.
