P/M Andrew Paul Girardin

Sept. 6, 1964 - April 1, 2010

Ceol na Gael, Charlotte's premier Irish bagpipe and drum band, will forever be indebted to our dear friend and Pipe Major Andy Girardin.


Andy passed away on Thursday, April 1, 2010 after fighting a courageous battle against colon cancer.


Going forward, Ceol na Gael will do our best to honor Andy by facing difficult situations with the style and grace for which Andy was famous.  Like Andy, we also will strive to see the beauty and humor in everyday life.
