The annual church gate collection for Comhaltas takes place in County Sligo on weekend of February 16th and 17th. Our branch will be collecting at the churches listed below and we ask for the help of our branch members. Fundraising from flag days and the annual church gate collection have enabled us to buy musical instruments and extend our instrument bank.
We have purchased harps, concertinas, accordions, flutes, fiddles, uilleann pipes which we lend at a nominal rent to children attending our classes.
Costumes for bands and grúpaí cheoil have also been purchased .
We appreciate your support in the past and ask parents / family members again to help us with this collection. A permit has been obtained from Garda authorities and posters are available.
