THE CURRENT World Pipe Band Champions, the New Ross and District Pipe Band, will be out and about the roads of New Ross this Christmas to work off some of those festive calories and in an effort to raise some much needed funds for the band.
Everyone is encouraged to join with or support the band members in a sponsored walk on Saturday, December 30 that will circle the 10km radius of New Ross.
The walk will be 'piped' off from The Tholsel at 10.30 a.m. and will make its way over the South Quay and around the ring road and onto Cherry's Road and finish again at The Tholsel. Anyone who would like to join in the walk with the band can get a sponsor card from any band member or by contacting the band through their Facebook page.
All are welcome to join with the band for its final event of a most famous year.
Meanwhile, the band will be adding their now customary musical cheer along South Street and at The Tholsel at 3 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
