History

The band first started up about 36 years ago, back in late 1975 a group of Glasgow Republicans formed what became the famous JCRFB. In 2001 the JCRFB got put off the road only to return with a louder bang in 2010, taking part in their first parade in over ten years at the 2011 Easter Commemeration in Belfast.

Since then we have taken part in all Cairde na hhÉireann marches. The band is always looking for new members, experienced or not we will teach you how to play an instrument. So if you are interested in joining get in touch and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Alternativley you can speak to any of our members at one of the marches in which we participate in.
