    Ireland Colliery were a champ(?) section band i believe. Many of Dronfields players/ex-players played with them at some point. It's good to see them back!!

    I know it's hard to workout. But yes but Ireland colliery is based near Chesterfield in Derbyshire and not in Ireland.

    Plus they were once a champ/1st section band. But are now looking to contest again after a four year absent.

    The fact that just up the road is both Wales and Rhodesia shouldn't confuse matters that much?

    I remember my surprise the first time i turned off the motorway to Sheffield, seeing signs for Wales... weird!!
