Millstreet Féile Cheoil 2017

VOLUNTEERS URGENTLY REQUIRED
As we are a community organisation, we rely on your help to run these events. We fully appreciate all our volunteers and the more people who come on board, the less we all have to do. This year we are looking for more competition clerks to come on board – your job would be to help the judge with the smooth running of the competition. Or, you may want to stay out of the limelight – that’s OK too. You can help with venue set up and tidy up after, cleaning trophies or with our catering team.  [read more …] “Millstreet Féile Cheoil 2017”

New Comhaltas Instrument Bank

2015 Millstreet Comhaltas - logoMillstreet Comhaltas Branch are trying to build up an new instrument bank. This is a great way for children to try new instruments without initially having to commit to the cost of a new one.

If you have any old instruments you are finished with and would like to donate, we would be most grateful whatever the condition. If you could drop into our weekly session on a Monday in the Parish Center from 7-8 pm. The instruments will then be available to rent to our comhaltas members to try out.

Many thanks from Millstreet Comhaltas Branch
