Pipers give town a huge boost
THE ARRIVAL of 47 pipe bands in New Ross for the All-Ireland Pipe Band Championships gave a huge boost to local businesses and accommodation providers.
Brian MacMahon of New Ross & District Pipe Band said: 'The event provided a much needed boost to the local economy and it has certainly put New Ross on the map for many visitors. Many businesses, including the Dunbrody Centre, reported very brisk trade on the day and over the weekend.'
Among those in the Town Park on Saturday were Ciara Murray and Niamh Burke, left.
