About Craobh Bheartla Ui Fhlatharta


Our branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann was formed in 1981. From humble beginnings as a branch with only a few members but a very committed committee the branch is now thriving and is one of the the most active branches in County Kildare.

The Wonderful Barn, Leixlip, Co. Kildare

We have 9 teachers working with over 150 pupils at our Monday evening classes. We have classes for all ages and standards. We also have Irish Language Classes for all ages and standards.

Every second Wednesday we have our "slow sessions" for our pupils and all music learners in the area. These sessions give musicians the opportunity to play with others at the same level as them, and to experience playing with other instruments. 

Our pupils have competed at County, Provincial and All Ireland levels in all age groups and all competitions. Our goal is to bring traditional Irish music, song and dance into as many homes as possible in north Kildare.

All of the information about the branch is available through the links in the navigation bar at the top of this page.
