I wrote this to welcome the new Chieftain, Sir Andrew, to the games in 2005. His father was the founder of the Ashbourne Gathering in the 1970's and now one of Englands prettiest and most enjoyable highland games.

Le Gaiety Escape

I was in Lorient in 2000 with The City of Newcastle Pipe Band and Le Gaiety Pub was our "local". Some of the guys were still there at 4 am one morning when the local gendamerie called. They all escaped out the back door and over the fence - a great escape if ever there was one!
