This weekend the Clondalkin Youth Band hosted a fantastic table quiz Boomers pub in Clondalkin. The space was packed out with lots of supporters from the band members past and present, their families and friends and of course the local community. A great night was had by all and we would like to thank everyone for their great support.
In particular we would like to thank our sponsors of the event who helped to make it a night to remember.

St. Patrick's weekend is one of the busiest weekends of the year for any marching band in Ireland, not least one of Irelands biggest and most popular marching bands! Each St. Patrick's day the band makes their yearly appearance in the Dublin parade. After that, it is straight onto the buses to take part in local town parades being held that afternoon. That same week the band takes part in the marching band festival competition in Limerick city competing against bands from all over Ireland and the visiting bands from around the world who travel each year to Ireland to take part in the various festivities. CYB will competes with a new theme each year to try to re-claim the top prizes again.
Marching with over 80 members, this includes new members marching for the first time with the band and helping to put on a great show!

25 years of making music and friends were celebrated by Clondalkin Youth Band in 2011at a special reception in the Green Isle hotel in Clondalkin. What a fantastic night! It was great to see so many ex band members from over the years and catch up with everyone. A great night was had by all. A big thanks to all involved in organising it and everyone who has supported the band over the years. A big thanks also to our local business supporters whose support over the years has helped the band go from strength to strength and so have helped to spread the name of Clondalkin internationally.
