Open meeting to establish Wexford branch of Comhaltas

By Esther Hayden

A group of local Irish music, singing and dancing enthusiasts have come together with a view to setting up a branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Eireann in Wexford Town. There is a wealth of musical talent in and around the town and a branch of Comhaltas will provide an outlet for this talent and allow young people to learn new tunes, songs and dances.

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Eireann is a non-profit cultural movement with hundreds of local branches around the world and has been working for the cause of Irish music since it was established in 1951. It arranges music, song, dance and language classes as well as facilitating regular sessions where the general public can come, listen and enjoy.

Comhaltas also takes groups of musicians, singers, dancers and storytellers on tour around the world and run competitions at local, regional and national level.

A public meeting to discuss the plans for setting up the Wexford Town branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Eireann will take place in the Talbot Hotel on Tuesday, December 1, at 8.15 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
