The Living Tradition
Welcome to Portarlington CCÉ
Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann has been active in Portarlington for over 60 years. A branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann was set up in 1958. From the early 1970’s, with a new committee elected, a fresh impetus was gained for the promotion of all Comhaltas orientated activities.
Our mission is to bring Irish Traditional music, singing and dance into as many homes as possible in the Portarlington and surrounding areas.
Ever since, this Branch has had a continuous history of promoting cultural activities, hosting fleadhanna cheoil, holding traditional music and dancing classes, performing at all local events and competing at all Fleadhanna.
