Leighlinbridge Brass Band

Phone: (059) 972 3531

The Brass Band was set up in 2007 with five musical instruments and eleven school children who joined up following an approach to the local school. The first set of instruments was borrowed from the Kilkenny Brass Band and under the musical direction of Marion Walsh from the Presentation College Bagenalstown, a very enthusiastic group of musicians set out. The Band’s training has progressed well and they now play occasionally at public events with the Kilkenny Brass Band. Grants from the Arts Council and Carlow VEC has enabled the Band to purchase a set of instruments. Training takes place in the Parish Centre on Tuesday night 7 to 8 p.m., Thursday afternoon 3 to 4 pm and they also train in the school.
