It is with sadness that we report the sudden passing of Frank Andrews, former Pipe Major of MacNeilstown Pipe Band in Northern Ireland.
Frank died suddenly at home last night after collapsing. As drone tuner in chief for Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band he was an integral part of Richard Parkes’s championship winning team.
Frank will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He is pictured in the above photograph of FMM front row seated second from the right.
P/M Richard Parkes paid this heartfelt tribute to Frank: ‘The band were deeply saddened to hear of Frank’s passing this morning. He was the true definition of a gentleman and a legend in our art.
‘Frank was a huge part of the FMM family and was loved by us all. Our thoughts are with his family at this very sad time.’
