Castlebar Concert and Marching Band

Castlebar Concert and Marching Band hail from the former British Army Garrison town of Castlebar, Co. Mayo deep in the West of Ireland  and are regular visitors to Kilkenny City to entertain our people and visitors alike. Sporting the Kilkenny colours of Black and Amber in their uniforms coupled with their electric selection of Marches, Musicals and Classical pieces it’s no wonder that this Band is in high demand throughout Ireland.

Recently returned from the Big Apple New York where the Band played for the Irish Consul on Park Avenue, entertained the Mayo Community at the Irish  Great Hunger Memorial in Battery Park, Manhattan and also in Gaelic Park, The Bronx home to the Gaelic Athletic Association in front of 10 thousand people for the New York versus Mayo Gaelic Football Match May 2019.

The Band Members are delighted to have this opportunity to play in Kilkenny Castle Park courtesy of the Office of Public Works and hope you enjoy their music.

The Band are lead by Ms. Dervela Hynes Musical Director whose father and family members have been in the Band for generations
