Welcome to the home of the Blanchardstown Brass Band, Dublin, one of the oldest bands in Ireland. The band have been performing at events and venues around Dublin and beyond for 186 years now. After being established in 1826 as the St. Brigid’s Brass & Reed Band, the name was changed in 1971 to reflect the all-brass nature of the band.
