Donegal Town Community Band strikes again!

Donegal Town Community Band have done it again.

The band has just won a second consecutive Ulster Title and are current All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil Champions. Now, the band’s leader Brendan McMonagle has been named County Donegal’s Local Legend by Ireland AM.

TV3 were filming the band in Donegal Town today for a segment broadcast to be broadcast on Monday morning at 8.15. The band performed at The Diamond and in the grounds of Donegal Castle.

Band member Jasmine Kennedy has won a trip for herself and 10 friends to Tayto Park. That’s her reward for nominating Brendan McMonagle as her ‘Local Legend’.

See Monday’s Donegal Democrat and People’s Press for photos and coverage.

On Monday morning, once the segment has been aired, you can support the band in the Finals by voting for Brendan. Just click here: TV3 Ireland AM.
