Young Irish Traditional Musicians
Dedicated to the preservation of traditional Irish music, Comhaltas works assiduously in teaching music to the young. Youthful musicians, under the auspices of the Reynolds-Hanafin-Cooley Branch, have performed in world championship competitions in Ireland, bringing honor to themselves and to their teachers and proving to the world the continuing love of Ireland and her music in America.
