Some photographs of the band in the past

Courtesy of Leo Shanahan, a former chairman and long serving band member of the band


We do not know where some of these photographs were taken nor the date. 

If you are able to help - or even provide more photographs - we will be very grateful.

Can you identify anyone?


The above were taken of the boys band but we know not when or where.






The above three photographs were taken on Corpus Christi - the last in 1967 (see the history page)
