41st South of Ireland Band Championships, Clonakilty Saturday, 4th July, 2020
Update to all Bands in regards to entry date for the 41st South of Ireland Band Championships.
Due to the current Covid-19 situation which we are all currently experiencing the entry date for all bands will be extended to Thursday April the 30th.
I would encourage all bands that have not yet sent in their entry form and entry fee to do so within this time frame.
Best Regards and take care.
Gerald O Driscoll,
Clonakilty will celebrate its annual Bands Day with the 41st South of Ireland Band Championships on Saturday, July 4th.
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]

Please note that the next post will be from the incoming SoI Bands' Coordinator whose contact details will be different to the current information.
Every good wish to all who will be involved in the 41st championships on July 4 and sincere gratitude to everybody who made our tenure of office over the years a truly happy experience. From now on we will have more precious time to joyfully browse through this site which was so diligently created and maintained over the years by our honorary IT officer, John Cocula.
