On Thursday evening June 27th 2013 twenty-eight members of the De La Salle Scout Pipe boarded the Waterford City Youth Committee bus and headed to Dublin for an onward flight to Berlin to take part in a very entertaining and enjoyable weekend in East Germany.
In the early part of the summer the band did extremely well in the Munster Pipe Band Championships which was held in Tralee in late June where they won the Munster MAPS pipe band competition and the drum corps were crowned Munster Champions having taken first place in their grade for the third year running. In September while in Pitlochry in the heart of Scotland competing against the best of Scottish pipe bands the Drum Corps again took first place in the Grade 4 competition. This was a super achievement for this talented group of players.
The band made their way to Concarneau in Northern France this summer as part of there busy summer schedule. Click more to find out how they got on.
