The results are in. . . .

. . . and FMM did indeed capture the G-1 championship. St Laurence O'Toole placed 5th. The full results aren't posted yet and my memory is a bit too porous to hold all that was announced but here is the top of the Grade 1 field:

1- Field Marshal Montgomery Memorial Pipe Band
2- Scottish Power Pipe Band
3- Simon Fraser University Pipe Band
4- Boghall & Bathgate Pipe Band
5- St Laurence O'Toole Pipe Band
6 - Strathclyde Police Pipe Band

Oh, and New Ross Pipe Band from Wexford in the Republic took 1st place in Grade 3A.

Videos of the Grade 1 competition sets should be up in a few hours. The BBC has been pretty quick about that lately.
