2018 Invitation to Bands

Dear Friends,

Clonakilty will celebrate its annual Bands Day with the 39th South of Ireland Band Championships on Saturday, July 7.

Once again we look forward to welcoming you all to an occasion which will be as successful and enjoyable as in the past. Each year the recitals on the streets are warmly received and with your kind co-operation we hope to follow the same format again this year.

As we expect many visitors to town on that weekend it is important that bands staying overnight should book accommodation without delay. Contact Clonakilty Tourist Office at 023-8833226 or email [email protected]

Rules and Entry Form attached.  Please complete the entry form and return it as soon as possible but not later than Friday, April 13 – hard copy only.

We look forward to your participation.  If you know of any other band which has not come to Clonakilty in the past, please pass on the word.  You are our best referees!

If we do not have your email address, kindly let us have it so that we can communicate through that medium.

Yours sincerely,
Eileen Kingston
(Co-ordinator)
