Furman marching band performs in Dublin St. Patrick’s Day parade
DUBLIN, IRELAND (FOX Carolina) - The Furman Marching Band traveled across the pond to represent the Paladin community at the 2023 St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland.
Furman band’s trip to Ireland was originally scheduled for 2021 but was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.
The band’s director, Dr. Sue Samuels released the following statement about the trip:
While the marching band traveled to the Emerald Isle, the Furman Men’s Basketball team made it to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1980.
The university said the basketball band usually would travel to the tournament, however, since they are traveling, North Greenville University’s band was able to step in.
