History

The Colmcille Pipe Band was formed back in 1978 and is still going strong 30 years on.  The band was given it's name by Bishop Daly.
The band started in the Hasson house in Ardnamoyle Park in the Shantallow area of the city.  The band is run on a very strong family base and has players from the North and South of Ireland playing in it's ranks today.
The band is known in the Pipe Band World as C.C.P.B. which is now under the direction of Pipe Major Mark Hasson, Drum Sargent Brian Hasson Jnr and Band Tutor Brian Hasson Snr.

On August 16th 2008 the C.C.P.B. achieved the biggest prize in the bands history by winning the World Pipe Band Championship in Grade 4a.

The C.C.P.B. is always looking for new players and are willing to answer any questions you may have so please do not hesitate to contact the band.

Thanks, The C.C.P.B.
