Leithinis classes are back up and running. We wish to extend a warm welcome to our new students. We now have classes in Tin whistle, Bodhran, Fiddle, Button Accordion, Concertina, Mandolin, Flute and Guitar. Our teachers are very experienced traditional Irish musicians and our lessons are taught in a relaxed and friendly environment.We had our Annual General Meeting in the Educate Together National School on Monday 17th September.. We would like to welcome our new Committee members on board and thank the members who have stepped down this year. A lot of work goes on in the background to keep the branch running and without these members volunteering their time the branch would not exist. If you have any free time and can help with the running of the branch please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be delighted to hear rom you. In addition to classes we have Grupai Cheoil sessions run by Erin, twice a month ( Fridays) in the Parish Hall. This is open to all members and there is a €5 fee per family to cover costs. The session caters for all levels of musical ability. We strongly encourage our students to join in these sessions. It is a great opportunity to practice and play the tunes learned in the classes with other students.There is a session for experienced musicians led by Denis in Keelings at 7.30pm on the first Tuesday of every month. If you want to listen to some traditional Irish music being played by local talented musicians this is the place to be.We held our Annual Fundraising Raffle in Donabate Town Centre in September. It was a great success. A very big thank you to McNeela Music Instruments for donating the prizes and to everyone who bought tickets.For latest news and updates about our branch please see our Facebook page or visit our website at leithinis.com.
