A MEMORIAL concert to mark the centenary of the death of the Tomás MacCurtáin will take place in City Hall later this month. 

Organised by the Tomás MacCurtáin pipe band, the memorial concert will tell the life of Tomás MacCurtáin and his involvement in the Gaelic League and Irish Volunteers through Irish music, song and dancing. 

The concert will involve a number of traditional Irish musicians, singers and dancers from various Comhaltas branches in Cork, along with a number of other invited guests. 

The New Hampshire Police Association Pipes and Drums, and the Bergen County Police Pipes and Drums, New Jersey, will also play a number of sets, celebrating MacCurtáin's own involvement within pipe bands in Cork. 

MacCurtáin played the bagpipes from an early age and helped establish the Cork Volunteer Pipe Band in 1914, of which he was a member until his murder in 1920. 

The concert takes place on Friday, March 20 at 7:30pm. 

Tickets cost €10 and are currently on sale at ProMusica, on Oliver Plunkett Street. 

They can also be purchased through the Tomás MacCurtáin Buíon Píobairí Facebook Page.
