Councillor and out-going Treasurer, Ger Carthy, presented commemorative medallions, issued by the Ard Comhairle of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, to these honoured guests. The recipients were: Martha Torpey, Gertrude Walsh, Barbara Walsh, David Roche, Paddy Berry, Liam Gaul, Sean Rattigan, Paddy Ryan, Seamus Coleman, Michael Murphy, Marcella Gleeson, Bernie Radford.

Comhaltas Logo

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann is the largest group involved in the preservation and promotion of Irish traditional music. We’re a non-profit cultural movement with hundreds of local branches around the world, and as you can read in our history we’ve been working for the cause of Irish music since the middle of the last century (1951 to be precise). Our efforts continue with increasing zeal as the movement launches itself into the 21st century.
