Statement from the band;
As you know our annual parade was due to take place on Saturday 25th June.
However since we made those plans, events have overtaken us, and (as you you may have heard) Northern Ireland will play Wales in Paris on Saturday.
This is probably (but hopefully not!) a ‘once in a generation’ game and we want our own members, as well as other bandsmen and women who would have been attending the parade, to be able to enjoy the match without having to think about travelling during (or even after) the game.
With that in mind we have this evening taken a decision to postpone, and our parade will NOT now take place as scheduled.
We hope to try to rearrange for a date later in the year, and we’ll update when we have more information.
Please share so that everyone who would have been considering travelling to Kilkeel on Saturday is aware.
