A great night was had by all.Fingal’s Creative Ireland Project 2021 invited applications for grant aid for cultural projects. Initiated by Leithinis CCE the Dublin County Board of Comhaltas Ceoltori Eireann applied for and were successful in securing grant aid for a project to highlight the rich heritage of music, song and dance which Comhaltas actively encourages and promotes.To this end a young talented crew led by award winning film maker and champion all Ireland Fiddle Player Naoise Kettle filmed some of our members playing tunes and dancing in the newly refurbished Donabate Parish Hall.
