Auckland, New Zealand – December 30, 2017 – Liam Kernaghan of Wellington, New Zealand, was in top form at the annual Northcote Invitational Solo Piping Competition, winning both the double March, Strathspey & Reel and the own-choice Medley. Stuart Easton, last year’s overall winner, judged both events. Prizes in each event were NZ$300, $200, $100, and $50 in each event, and another $500 for the overall winner. The sponsorship is from a combination of individual and local businesses contributions, with Wellington Bagpipe Supplies and the Auckland & District Pipe Band contributing.
