Lurgan, Northern Ireland – June 21, 2014 – St. Laurence O’Toole of Dublin continued its resurgence as a Grade 1 powerhouse with a win over the seemingly indomitable Field Marshal Montgomery of Belfast in the MSR event at the Craigavon & District Championships. FMM took the Medley contest and the overall award, but the story of the day was SLOT under the band’s new Pipe-Major Alen Tully. The event also saw he band’s former Pipe-Major Terry Tully return to the ranks after several months’ absence. SLOT also won the overall drumming and bass and tenor prizes. The event was organized by the Northern Ireland Branch of the RSPBA.
