Comhaltas (Craobh Beal Atha na mBuille)
Strokestown branch of Comhaltas was formed in the Magnet Ballroom in November 1955.
In 1956 they organised their first Strokestown Concert with the first County Fleadh being held in Strokestown in 1958.
Comhaltas vigorously promotes music, song, Comhra and dance and we hold sessions in Hanly’s Bar in Strokestown on the first Thursday of every month where all musicians, dancers, singers and storytellers are welcomed.
We organise a number of classes including Set Dancing, Irish Dancing, Sean Nos Dancing, Music and singing classes. We also organise a number of events including Siamsha Luachra Weekend of Music, Concert and Workshops for St. Patricks Weekend, Partake in Culture Night every September and we have an annual Trad For Trocaire event and an annual Yuletide Session every December. We also volunteer for the Feile in October.
