In particular the Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band has hit the top note by winning the World Championship for a record-equalling tenth time, and for the fourth time in a row.
This is an incredible achievement, but great praise is also due to the other Ulster pipe bands who won major prizes in competing against a combined 188 bands in the World Championships in Glasgow.
Clearly when it comes to piping, we are truly outstanding, and well in tune with the times.
