Northern Ireland Bands on Parade

John Kelly reports: Some of Northern Ireland’s pipe bands took part in the Sham Fight parade in Scarva on Friday 13th July.  The annual Sham Fight is one of the largest cultural events in Northern Ireland’s calendar and tens of thousands of people who flocked to the event enjoyed a great day out in wall to wall sunshine.

The small and quaint Co. Down village has become renowned for hosting the biggest one-day event, at a single location, anywhere in the Province. Picture gallery:
