QIA Pipe Band marches to victory at Maclean Highland Gathering

April was a busy month for Queensland Irish Association Pipe Band. Not only did they take part in the Anzac Day Parade in Brisbane, they also competed in the pipe band competitions at Maclean Highland Gathering in New South Wales.

  Maclean Showgrounds has been home to Highland Gatherings for 128 years, and they provide the opportunity for high-level competition for pipers, drummers, dancers and sportsmen and women in their chosen cultural pursuit. 

  The gathering has grown to become one of Australia’s pre-eminent Celtic cultural events. 

  Queensland Irish Association Pipe Band came third in the Band Contest Grade 4B Marches category.

  They also took part in a street parade and Scottish ceilidh.
