Well done to all Fleadh Cheoil Participants in 2015

The summer of 2015 saw Clonakilty Comhaltas partake in the Fleadh Cheoil competitions at County, Provincial and All-Ireland level. A special mention for our U12 Ceilí Band that won 2nd place in the Cork county Fleadh in Ballincollig and put in a storming performance at the Munster Fleadh in Nenagh. Well done to parents, children and teachers involved. A mention also for Brian Carroll who took part in the All-Ireland U12 piano accordian competition in Sligo in August, a fantastic achievement for all involved.

Next Open Session: Sunday 24th May

The next session of Clonakilty Comhaltas will be held on Sunday 24th May at 3pm in Gaelscoil Mhichíl Uí Choileáin.  This will be the last open session before the summer break and we invite musicians, dancers and singers of all ages to come along an join in for an afternoon of entertainment. We will have a number of performances from participants at the recent Cork County Fleadh Cheoil held in Ballincollig (well done to all those who participated!).
