"Mr. Hardy and his merry men progressed from stage to stage until February, 1863, when the band made its debut in the outer world. The occasion was a banquet given by the then Lord Mayor of Dublin, when the RIC Band was requested to provide the music. The result fully justified the choice. The Metropolitan Press teemed with complimentary notices and from then on, few large social gatherings took place in Dublin without its presence. Depot recruits passed out swinging past to the inspiring music of the "Young May Moon" which became the signature tune of the RIC." (From the website of the Garda Siochana Historical Society)
