The Pipes & Drums of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Division One, has been in existence for over 20 years. It began in the Monroe, NY area by a handful of pipers. It has now grown to approximately 42 members, along with a number of students. The piping students are now being taught by the one and only Jim Kelly (our former Pipe Major); many of our current pipers were taught by the late Bill Spencer. The snare drummers are taught by John Mollahan, while the tenor drummers are taught by Kathryn Collins. Tom Fleming is our current Pipe Major; Bill Hawkens is our Pipe Sergeant. Chris McCanonico is our new Drum Sergeant and Seamus Davis (leading us up 5th Avenue in the picture at right) leads us as our Fearless Drum Major.
