By The Left, Quick March: Limerick's Marching Band Tradition
By the Left, Quick March - Limerick’s Marching Band Tradition by Dr Derek Mulcahy is published by Limerick City and County Council, in partnership with Mary Immaculate College.

In this book Derek has captured the history of the brass and reed, fife and drum, and pipe bands by exploring newspaper accounts and band records which tell of the proud traditions of these bands in the city. The book includes numerous interviews from band members themselves, along with photographs ranging from the 1880s to 2022.
