In the past Comhaltas has supported Music Network in organising many events across the country. In support of this initiative Mr Jimmy Deenihan T.D., Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht said “I’m delighted that my Department can again support National Music Day. This is a great opportunity for people to engage with our vibrant musical culture. In the year of The Gathering, National Music Day also showcases our musical talent for those returning home or visiting Ireland. Wherever you are on Friday 21st of June, you won’t be far from a live music event”.So don’t forget Friday 21st June at Roscrea Castle at 7.30pm with Comhaltas Ros Cré.

The sessions then revert back to Thursday nights in Damer Court Hotel where it is hoped that visiting branches will join the branch to put on a fun filled night of music song and dance. Practise for the up comming Munster Fleadh Cheoil is well under way and it is hoped that there will be a full attendance from here on.
