|The Cleveland Firefighters Memorial Pipes and Drums was formed in 1991 with the primary purpose to "Honor Our Fallen."|
The Gaelic version, Onoir Do Na Marbh, appears on the band's bass drum and shoulder patches. The band participates in line of duty death funerals to honor firefighters, EMS personnel and police officers and has traveled to Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia and Massachusetts to perform for firefighter line of duty death services. In October of 2002, we participated in the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Washington, DC. and in September of 2004, we traveled to Colorado Springs for the International Association of Firefighters annual Fallen Firefighter Memorial.
The band, as well as individual pipers, can be hired for firehouse dedications and open houses, parades, parties, weddings, and many other special events to play traditional Irish, Scottish and American tunes.
