It is with great regret that the Pipe Band fraternity in Ireland learned of the untimely death this morning of Gerri Nolan Gerri Nolan (Dublin) after a long illness which was borne with great fortitude.
Gerri started her pipe band career with her sister , June Nolan, in the famous Emerald Girls Pipe Band of Dublin. During a long playing career, Gerri played with the Howth , Narraghmore , Fintan Lalor, Arklow , Black Raven and Cloughfin Pipe Bands.
As well as being a highly accomplished bagpiper , Gerri, was also a very good Uilleann piper . She always gave freely of her time in teaching others to play and was a regular visitor to pipe band events throughout Ireland and Scotland.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to all Gerri’s family and friends. She will be sadly missed by the Pipe Band World.
Gerri’s funeral will take place on Saturday morning after 10.00 Mass in Knocklyon Parish Church, Templeogue, Dublin.
