The above photo is of the new Galway City Pipe Band. They got together and practiced for a couple of months and did their first public appearence on St.Patricks Day 2008. The band was so new that they did not yet have kilts. Its great to see this band wearing this type of cap. It reminds me of the film "The Quiet Man". I think these caps are called a bobaleen or something like that. I like them.
