Well known all across Ireland, the Boherbuoy Brass & Reed Band is a 170-year-old thriving music ensemble based in beautiful Limerick City.

We are passionate about bringing the arts to our community here in Limerick and love to perform there regularly but, we also perform nationwide each year at events such as the South of Ireland Band Championships in Co. Cork and the National Band Championships hosted each year by the IABCB.

We also proudly participate in The Limerick International Band Championship each year. Even though we are not officially a marching band, we do enjoy stretching our legs from time to time — especially to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!

We love to connect with fellow musicians and bands from around the world. If you or your group are planning a visit to Ireland, we invite you to visit our beautiful city! We would love to meet you.
