Hot-off-the-press piping news ("the press" in this case being the Pipes|Drums website):

European championships were held today. Two Irish bands topped the list in Grade I:

1. St Lawrence O'Toole
2. Field Marshal Montgomery

And two Irish bands topped the list in Grade II:

1. Ravara
2. Seven Towers If you click on the Seven Towers link you'll get a couple of lovely, melodic hornpipes in the background. Don't know the first but the second is Train Journey North. Recommended.

[ADDENDUM: Hmmm. It seems if one reads to the end of the page one discovers that the first hornpipe is called The Referendum Hornpipe.
