About Us

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann is the largest worldwide organisation devoted to the promotion and preservation of Irish Traditional Music, Song, Dance & Language. In Britain there are 25 branches spread throughout the country each with its own story and dynamic interpretation of Irish Culture.

Comhaltas are governed by a board of elected members called the Ard Comhairle and as members of the organisation we are bound by the rules and guidelines set out in our 

constitution 'The Bunreacht'. To view this document, click on the book to the right.
