I heard Pat McCromick at O'Gara's at the State Fair. I inquired about bagpipe lessons and he suggested I check you website for practice times. Please let me know day, time and location of your practices so that I can find out about bagpipe lessons. Thanks, Tim

Said "Hi!" to the members at your stand at the Irish Fair & got a CD. Love it! Would love to come to one of your practice sessions.

Beautiful. I wish we had such a band here in the Florida Panhandle. If I get back to Minne I will look you up and try to catch a performance.

Hey Laddies, Music sounds great. (And may sound even better when you stop serving Pig's Eye Beer at rehearsals.) Very fine website.

The O'Brien Clan Foundation is working with city councils and civic leaders in Dublin, Cashel, Killaloe, and Armagh to coordinate a series of commemorations of the millennium of the Battle of Clontarf in April, 2014. Conor, "The O'Brien", Prince of Thomond and Chief of the O'Briens will be presiding over some of the events as the premier direct descendant of Brian Boru. One event of possible interest to your group is the proposed reenactment of the Battle of Clontarf in St. Anne's Park. I understand that in ancient times the High Kings were preceded by pipers. I wonder what you all would think about coming over to Ireland in 2014 to the official pipe band of the O'Brien Clan, marching in ahead of The O'Brien at events like the Solemn Requeim Mass, the battle reenactment, banquets in St. Patrick's Hall and at Clontarf Castle, and at the unveiling of a Brian Boru statue. Please let me know what you think about this!

We missed the Pipe Band at the North Branch American Legion yesterday due to my six year old daughter participating as a last entry in the parade. When we arrived at the Legion,she was so disappointed that she missed the band play,that she ran over to me and started crying uncontrollably. One of the band mates saw this and personally asked her if she was upset because she missed their perfomance? She stated yes. He personally took her outside and played a song for her. She thought that was the coolest thing ever! Needless to say, her parents couldn't have thanked him enough! She finally stopped crying! THANKS AGAIN! YOU GUYS ARE FANTASTIC!!!

while vacationing in March at Cape Code two kilties entered where I was having lunch. Curious, I had to meet the handsome men & asked to see their pipes. They, Brian and his pal, were so kind to play me a tune. What a thrill! Thank you for the bagpipe treat.

Thanks guys for all the wonderful music, fun and joy (and tears) at Dublin's in Emmetsburg.

I had Brian Boru Irish Pipe Band's Pat McCormick perform the pipes at my Irish mother's Memorial Mass. He was spectacular, by all accounts. Everyone who spoke about the Memorial Mass mentioned how special it was to have the excellent piper lead off and close the worship ceremony. Pat was completely easy to work with, came on time, was a good listener about what I wanted, and above all, he was a superb musician. I know my Irsh mom was looking down from Heaven having a WONDERFUL time! Paula Morphew

Hi to Charlie Russell, Sarah and Mia!

Thank you for playing at the Aberdeen, SD Celtic Faire. I enjoyed hearing your music. Our faire is still growing and having a quality pipeband helps bring people back. This was my first year attending the faire and I thouroughly enjoyed all of it.

Great to see a band so far away playing the Brian Boru Pipes!! Im from a pipe band in Ballygowan Co. Down Northern Ireland and we are one of a handfull that still play the Brian Boru pipes as the rest have opted for the Highland alternative. Keep up the good work lads!
On: August 11, 2009 @05:01 pm
Ah, the thrill of the sound. I love it!

Jim T! You guys are awesome. I didn't realize you had a website. Let me know when your next gig is at a pub. We want to come see you perform. Eric Ortman
On: March 14, 2009 @07:49 pm
I am glad to see someone using Brian Boru's name to carry on the good work of the Irish. I live in CT and only wish I lived a little closer to hear your music. I am a descendent of Brian Boru and it is my understanding that even to this day he is the most revered King of Ireland. Keep up the good work. Have a great St. Patricks day and be safe.

Great pictures. I play with the County Armagh Pipers Band in NY. We are the oldest band in NY. We have very similar uniforms Safron Kilts but with spats and green balmorals. I also teach the Local 3 Sword of Light Band. I heard your CD and you guys did a nice job. All the best. Joe Beyrer
