The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association Northern Ireland (RSPBANI) held their January branch meeting in Lisburn on Saturday 25th January.

The date fell on the birthday of Robert Burns and following the meeting, a fitting tribute was paid to the life and works of the great Scottish bard who was born on 25th January 1759 and died aged just 37 on 21st July 1796.

During a celebratory afternoon of fun, food and fellowship the branch officials and band representatives enjoyed haggis, neeps and tatties followed by tea, coffee and shortbread.

They also enjoyed listening to some of Burns’ classic tunes played on Scottish smallpipes and low whistle by RSPBANI Project Manager Ian Burrows, Pipe Major of Drumlough Pipe Band.
