The Ardee Concert Senior Band are very busy putting their final touches to get their entertaining programme for the 34th Annual South of Ireland Band Championships on Saturday 6 July at Clonakilty in Cork.
Twenty-five brass and concert bands will take part in the entertainment competition where its not just the music that is judged.
“This is always a very enjoyable and different competition to our Annual participation in the National Competitions, but its a very good different,” said band PRO Sinéad Nutley. “Last year the band took second place as well as the coveted price of Best Percussion Section, and were also thrilled with how their programme went down with the audience and the adjudicator, of course.
Dr Evelyn Grant will adjudicate the Junior category.
