The Forth Bridges Accordion Band are making preparations for their fourth annual trip to Northern Ireland for St Patrick’s Day.

Forty Bo’ness band members will be joining together with local groups in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, including Derryclavin Pipe Band and Erne Highland Dancers for a night of Scottish culture and concert.

On St Patrick’s Day, the band will be taking part in two parades, including the afternoon carnival parade of fancy dress, floats and bands.

Band leader Alan Potters, who is originally from Enniskillen himself and has relatives in Derryclavin Pipe Band, said: “The band members look forward to this trip every year and we are always made welcome by the locals.”
