my name is david plizga and i am secretary of st francis pipe
band based in the gorbals, glasgow.
this year is the bands 80th anniversary and, as part of our celebrations,
we are gathering together
as many photographs of the band over the years and we hope to
produce a 'photo-journal' of the band.
for many years, around the 1950's - 1960's the sta francis boys
guild would attend a summer camp in balbriggan.
i believe as many as 300 boys would travl from glasgow!
i am sure there must be many photograhs of the band, or the boys
guild, in ballbriggan at the time.
i was wondering if you could help us by mentioning on your web
page that we are looking for photographs
and any recollections of the boys in ballbriggan.
i would also be grateful if you could advise if there is a local
newspaper that we could plcae an article in.
thank you in anticipation of your help!
david plizga, secretary
Great Web site!!
You are the people in the know about the town,, With all the building
going on does any one know if there is going to be a Gym such as
Jackie Skellys opening ?
Thank you in advance for your reply.
I came across your Balbriggan.net website and though perhaps
you might he able to help. Would you know where in Balbriggan
(or surrounding area) I might get some guitar lessons.
