Web Site Of the Week Award

Here's what Bob Dunsire of the Bagpipe Web Directory said about the site....

"A Grade 4 band from Northern Ireland, with another example of  web master (already a WSOW winner) Rodney Brownlee's excellent work (also of Upper Crossgare Pipe Band). Here you'll  find a really attractive, interesting, and informative home page, (OK - it is a clone of another WSOW winner, but it is his own clone). I think the frames work well, the pages are distinctive and functional, and the graphics are well done. It is not too large a web site, I like the   thumbnails of each band member, I enjoyed browsing the Photos, and I enjoyed both MP3s.  Take a look, I think you'll enjoy your visit here.."

About The Band


For many years music has been an attraction in the neighbourhood of Derryclavin, of course not just pipes and drums, but also flutes and drums. The band received its name from the town land in which it is situated. Derryclavin is just outside the village of Lisbellaw, five miles outside Enniskillen, the Market Town of Co. Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. The band are the proud wearers of the Royal Stewart tartan, and wear the Stewart Crest as a cap badge. The current Pipe Major is Gordon McKeown (left) from Lisbellaw, who is following in his father's footsteps, Cecil, who was also Pipe Major.


The band is in Grade 4B of the Northern Ireland Branch of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Associationand although competition work does not feature strongly in the bands engagements, they always but on a good performance where ever they are invited to play.


The band practices on Monday nights in Derryclavin Hall. If you, or anyone you know are interested in joining the band, or if you have any questions or comments about the band then please e-mail the Pipe Sergeant, Rodney Brownlee, or the band secretary at the address below.
