Thiepval Memorial Pipe Band


Thiepval Memorial Pipe Band (Donegal) Formed in 1905, and formerly known as Convoy Pipe Band, the name was changed in 1919 to commemorate the many young men who died in the Theipval area of the Somme in 1916. The band has a long history of competing: their first record was in 1938. The present Pipe Major is Alyson McKnight and Drum Sergeant is Clarke Campbell. The band competes at Grade 3B and its most successful year to date was 2009 when they swept the boards at Grade 4B winning Scottish, British, All-Ireland, European and World Titles as well as Champion Of Champions and Supreme Champion Of Champions. The band was upgraded to 4A in 2010, and further to a successful season in 2011, was upgraded to Grade 3B.
