Melbourne Comhaltas commences the 2015 year this Wednesday 28th January at 7.30pm. Joan and Ray will once again lead the musicians and Marie Brouder will put the dancers through their paces.
Hope you can make it. If not to play or dance just to have a wee cuppa and talk about the holidays.

Melbourne comhaltas committee and members would like to extend their sincere sympathy to the Ducey family in Perth on the death of their family member and Comhaltas member, Maura. We have fond memories of Maura dancing with us all at the Port Fairy Ceili Mors. God rest her soul.
The committee of Melbourne Comhaltas is very happy to announce a great weekend was had by all who attended the music and dance workshops at the weekend. The atmosphere was hot in the Quiet Man on Friday where we all gathered for a ‘meet and greet’ night and continued on right through the weekend. Hearty thanks to Mary Clancy and her daughter Mary Kate for their expertise in set dancing and the humour which they brought into each set.
We had approximately 100 people in total pass through the door over the weekend and everyone left feeling on top of the world. Photos will follow soon. Thanks to all who came and supported this ‘so much looked-forward-to’ event!!
You still have an opportunity to take advantage of this lady’s skill. Mary will be at our Comhaltas venue for the next two Wednesday nights, 20th & 27th August. So come along and join in with the dancing from 8pm. A lovely supper is included.
Our venue is St. Philip’s Anglican Church Hall, Hoddle Street, Abbotsford, next to Collingwood Town Hall.
Melbourne Comhaltas will be running a series of workshops once a month.
Our latest workshop by the lovely Lynelle Moran on tin whistle was another success for Melbourne Comhaltas.
The workshop was enjoyed immensely by all those present.
Next workshop in July TBA. Watch this space
