Editor's Viewpoint: Hitting a high note

The Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band from Lisburn has yet again hit the right note by winning the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow.

This extraordinary ensemble of musicians were winners in 2006 and 2007, and runners-up last year. They now hold seven world titles, which makes them the most successful pipe band in history.

At the weekend they won a competition in which 8,000 pipers competed for nine hours. Northern Ireland now has a world champion pipe band and three world-beating golf champions.

Happily, we are now in tune with success in many different ways.
