A new documentary on TV this week will examine the local love affair with the fife and drum band in Donegal.
An Bhuíon Cheoil on TG4 this January 1st visits West Donegal to meet the people behind the long-held tradition.
The hour-long film, presented by Falcarragh native Caitlín Nic Aoidh, finds out why band culture has a unique place in local parishes.
With participants of all ages passionate to win the big competitions, the show will examine what it is that fuels the commitment to and longevity of the marching band tradition found within Donegal’s rural communities.
The documentary is sure to have many familiar faces as cameras meet the people behind the bands, observing their personal motivations, hopes, dreams and sacrifices as they compete both locally and further afield.
