Comhaltas Concert in Portlaoise

Comhaltas Concert in Portlaoise

To celebrate the end of a very busy and most successful year Portlaoise branch of An Comhaltas held a student concert at St Paul’s NS thanks to the generosity of the management and staff.
Each week the voluntary leaders organise classes on Tuesdays and Fridays employing a panel of 15 teachers who specialise in playing harp, fiddle, uileann pipes, bodhrán, banjo and so forth. The learners progress to bands and groups which support community activities such as the official opening of the Commemorative 1916 Garden at Co Hall, Laois GAA Awards night and James Fintan Lalor Autumn School.

Portlaoise Parish 1916 Commemoration was the highlight event of the year when over 700 people attended to hear the Comhaltas Laois Folk Orchestra at SS Peter & Paul’s Church, an evening that will be fondly remembered for many years.
