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
