Welcome to Craobh Naithí
Craobh Naithí, based in south County Dublin, was established in 1976. It is one of the largest and most active branches across the entire Comhaltas network.
Craobh Naithí presents a weekly programme of music classes, with 25 teachers and 450 class places. Instruments taught include fiddle, flute, tin whistle, tenor banjo,
button and piano accordion, concertina, harp and sean nós singing.
It is the policy of Craobh Naithí that traditional music is taught and played in a pure
traditional style. Classes are held each Thursday evening from September to May
in St. Colmcille’s Community School, Scholarstown Road, Knocklyon.
Other branch activities include 5 x one hour grúpaí cheoil classes to develop performance
playing, participation at events such as fleadhanna cheoil and Oireachtas na Gaeilge
competitions, regular branch sessions, weekend visits to other Comhaltas branches in Ireland
and abroad and support to local cultural events such as Seachtain na Gaeilge and Wren Boys.
In addition, Ceardlann an Fhómhair, Craobh Naithí‘s annual traditional music weekend of masterclasses, workshops
and performances by prominent visiting musicians, takes place each November.
Ceardlann an Fhómhair 2013
will be our 19th consecutive year.
