Malahide castle pipe and drum competition
By bnitz on May 15, 2005
The annual bagpipe competition at Malahide castle grounds is becoming an annual tradition for our family. My daughter heard this the week before she was born. The sound of her toy pipes used to make her cry, but at one year she swayed to the real musicians in the competition. This year she dances along with the music. The competition ends with a lament in honor of those who are no longer with us. After an afternoon of bagpipes, the silence is especially silent. Then the winning bands parade through the village before celebrating at one of the local pubs.
