We travelled to Cape Clear to support their local Festival on the island. It was choppy weather going over but the sun came out as we arrived. It was a lovely day out and the islanders hosted us well.
We would like to sincerely acknowledge the financial contributions made by individuals, families, and friends of St.Fachtna's Silver Band. Without your support, it's maintenance would be impossible.
If you would like to contribute to, or join the band, please contact us

On Saturday we enjoyed the fabulous summer weather and played an afternoon recital for the residents of the Skibbereen Residential Care Home and Retirement Village. A lovely day out.

After a long break due to Covid 19 lockdown it was great to be back playing in Skibbereen Town. We started playing at 1130am and finished at 1245pm playing a mixture of old and new music to entertain the passing crowds. Well done to all who came along to support our return.

The band turned up for a pre-carol service entertainment where we played a selection of carols prior to the main event. It is a lovely setting and we are always pleased to be involved in the community event every year. Well done all.
The band turned up on Saturday 30th November between the showers to provide some entertainment in Skibbereen town before the lighting of the Christmas tree. Was the first outing for our new cornet player Benny. Well done to all involved.
