Band trip to Limerick, Ireland

15th - 18th March 2008

Saturday 15th: Arrival

A very excited youth marching band from Kent met at Hayesbrook School in the early hours to travel to Stanstead Airport. The band were travelling to Limerick, Ireland to represent England in an International Band Competition and St. Patrick's Day Parade. Flying into Cork, the band made their way to Limerick and arrived at the Youth Hostel late afternoon to find the van that contained all the kit, instruments, uniforms and luggage parked outside the Youth Hostel. The band drew a huge sigh of relief, especially the girls as they now had the most important item for the trip, hair straightners. Once the van was unloaded and the band had been fed and watered it was straight down to business to prepare all of the uniforms and instruments for the following day's event.
