An Chraobh/About us

With a highly active and dedicated committee and a growing membership, the Cavan Town Branch of Comhaltas is looking forward to a bright and busy future.

The Cavan Town Branch runs regular sessions throughout the year. It organises concerts, céili and set dancing plus tuition in music, song and dance. The Branch also puts on a series of concerts throughout the months of July and August each year in Cavan Crystal Hotel and also The Cavan County Museum in Ballyjamesduff.

New members are particularly welcome. Passing on the tradition of Irish culture is what Comhaltas do. Our informal sessions are one example of this and if you come along you will be treated to a wonderful evening of traditional music and song by children & adults of all ages. The branch runs sessions every Sunday. All musicians, singers and dancers are encouraged to attend.  Those seeking information on traditional music classes, details on sessions or membership should contact the Branch on email cavantowncce44@gmail.com or visit our Facebook page Cavantowncce .
