A Bit of the Irish
A Special Place for Your Band

Continued from Page 55

where bands often perform, also include visits to the Cliffs of Moher and the famed Book of Kells in Dublin.

When I look back on my 9 trips to Ireland, I realize just how fresh and exciting it is each and every time I return. While the things to see and the places to go are vast and highly varied, there is little question that Ireland is first and foremost about the people. You will instantly feel welcomed everywhere in the country and get caught up in a special atmosphere that exists nowhere else in the world.

There's also a great spirit of giving and as a band your students will find not only people like Scott and myself helping move chairs and stands to get a band ready for a concert, but who else but our good friend John Cox, who not only makes all the arrangements, he even owns timpani, bass drum and stands that his visiting groups need for performance.

While the Dublin parade is an excellent venue for your band, the Limerick All-Band Parade a couple of days later is a one-of-a kind event in another great sightseeing area.
