Classes for existing members will be online starting on Wednesday 22nd September 2021, until we can go ahead safely with in person classes.

We hope to return to our full classes as soon as possible, which usually take place each Wednesday evening from 5pm to 10pm in Gaelscoil na Dúglaise. We offer classes from all levels from beginner to advanced in all instruments listed below.

All students are graded by teacher according to their musical ability. We aim to keep all class sizes as small as possible to ensure students have sufficient time with the teacher. All individual classes are 30mins long with Grùpa/Ceilí Band classes 45mins to 60mins.”

Instrument Bank

In Craobh na Dúglaise we endeavour to provide as many opportunities as possible for students to play Irish Traditional Music. To this end our Instrument bank and the rental and rent-to-buy schemes are key element of this ethos, whereby the branch purchases the instruments at a discount upfront and allows the student to rent or pay the cost over a specific period, generally 1-3 years.

We presently have a number of instruments that are available and should you wish to enquire about using the instrument bank or if you are considering purchasing a new instrument please talk to either Ger O’Driscoll or Aislinn Cogan by e-mailing douglas@comhaltas.net.
