FMM win 9th World Title and 3rd Grand Slam
Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band from Lisburn, Northern Ireland won the 2013 World Pipe Band Championships at Glasgow Green.
This is the 9th time the band has won the event which attracts bands from all over the world. This year over 200 pipe bands competed with FMMPB winning the closely contested Grade 1 competition.
This year the grade 1 bands were all required to qualify on Saturday playing a March, Strathspey and Reel and Medley. FMM qualified and won the Sunday final with five firsts from eight adjudicators to win by a margin of eight points.
The band went on to win the Cowal Gathering and completed a rare Grand Slam of Major Championships for the 3rd time.
Almost half the pipe corps play our Peter Henderson bagpipes. We are extremely proud to sponsor the band and we send them our congratulations on another fantastic season.
