Exciting revival of Loughmacrory Accordion Band, Páistí Ná Fingréine
Loughmacrory Accordion Band, Páistí Ná Fingréine, was formed in the early 1970’s and is named after the largest lough in the Loughmacrory area, Lough Fingrean.
The band was very active for over a decade and re-grouped again in 1987 for the official opening of St Mary’s Chapel in Loughmacrory.
They spent the following 4 years ‘on the march’ around Fleadheanna, parades, sports days and competitions and were then largely inactive until 2009 when they re-formed to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Cumann Luthchleas Gael.
The official opening of Loughmacrory’s new sporting and community facilities in June this year presented an opportunity for the band to play a part. This ushered in a revitalised determination to keep the band going and recruit a new generation into its ranks.
Practice sessions are planned for the autumn and winter and anyone who wants to join up is very welcome. Full details can be accessed here on www.loughmacrory.com or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Páistí Ná Fingréine is delighted with this opportunity to play at the Hurling and Football County finals this year and the members are very thankful to Tyrone Board for the invitation.
