We asked if any of you had any idea why this Scottish Pipe Band was parading through the streets of New Ross, Co. Wexford on Saturday, 8 July 1972. Hearty thanks to slotpb-admin for letting us know that this pipe band was taking part in the All-Ireland Pipe Band Championship which is "always held on the first Saturday in July".

Thanks to Niall McAuley for establishing this location on The Quay in New Ross, at the corner of Charles Street.

Plus, delighted that in the tradition of all parades everywhere throughout history, one boy has decided to march along behind the band...

Date: Saturday, 8 July 1972
