Musical Classes for Children and Adult
Our Enrolment evenings take place in advance of each term and take place twice a year. The classes then start shortly afterwards, usually in February and September.
The Fred Finn Branch runs Saturday classes in Gael Scoil Cnoc na Ré, Maugheraboy with children given the opportunity to play on a wide variety of instruments – whistle, flute, fiddle, button accordion, concertina and harp. We have monthly singing classes on Thursday evenings
