Win at Ceol An Geimhridh
Claire Bradley of Comhaltas na Dúglaise won first place in the Wind Section Under 11 at Ceol an Geimhridh in Macroom last Sunday. Well done Claire. Music and singing classes resumed at Gaelscoil na Dúglaise last Wednesday.
Céili Dancing Classes
Comhaltas na Dúglaise are starting a series of céilí, old time and set dance classes in Douglas ICA Hall this Sunday from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. The branch is anxious to pass on to a new generation the many old dances that will be lost if not taught to the present and the next generation. The general idea is to make the Céilí night a family social occasion with a cup of tea and a chat at the break. Enquiries firstname.lastname@example.org.
