Welcome

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann was formed in 1951 with the aim of promoting traditional Irish music and culture around the world.

The Newbridge branch of Comhaltas has been operating successfully in the area since 1977. Through the combined efforts of the working committee, members and attendees, Newbridge CCE has, over the years, hosted many events. Examples include two county fleadhs, monthly music sessions, singing sessions, ceilis, workshops and various traditional music/singing and Irish language classes.
We are currently running classes in tin whistle, banjo/mandolin, fiddle and concertina. In addition, between October and May, sessions are held on the first Thursday of each month.
