Eian Orr

It is with great sadness and shock I have to inform you all that Eian Orr passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Saturday night.

Eian’s brother Dougie has emailed me, I’m afraid I don’t have any other information regarding funeral etc.

Eian was the youngest of the Orr brothers, Bill being the eldest with Dougie the middle brother. The family home was in Havelock street, Partick.

Eian can be seen here carrying the trophy at the front of the band in Rothesay 1975
Colin McCallum, Ally Morrison, Bill Orr, Eian Orr, Louis Collins and George Hunter who was the drumming instructor at the time in his Milngavie kilt.

After leaving the 214 Eian played in the Bishopbriggs Pipe band along with his brother Bill, Stevie McQuillan and Stevie Littlejohn.

He also played in the Glasgow Skye Association Pipe Band along with myself & Stevie Littlejohn. Thereafter moving to the 100 Pipers Whisky Pipe Band.

Eian lived down in Ayrshire and I personally hadn’t seen him for a good few years.

I’m sure all Ex Members would like to extend their condolences to the whole Orr family at this sad time.

I will post up funeral details nearer the time, although no doubt due to Covid-19 there will be restrictions.
