About Portarlington CCÉ

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann has been active in Portarlington for over 50 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.

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.
