Welcome to the Kildare Comhaltas Website

I am delighted to welcome you to the website of Bórd Chill Dara C.C.E.

This year we are celebrating 50 years of Kildare County Board and our new website will be a great asset in promoting this great occasion and also for promoting our traditional music song and dance around the county.  Kildare County Board was formed in Lawlor’s Hotel Naas in January 1967 and I am delighted to say that members who were present in 1967 are still involved to this day and we are always glad to draw on their knowledge and experience.  To mark this great occasion, we will be having a celebratory night in the Westgrove Hotel Clane on the 25th March 2017 tickets are available from any of the committee 

Currently we have five branches of Comhaltas in Kildare, Clane, Kilcock, Kilteel Eadestown, Leixlip and Maynooth. I would like to thank everybody in the branches who work so hard in organising music classes, sessions, ceilithe and also for their generous support of the County Board for such events as Fleadh Cheoil Chill Dara and Ceardlann an Earraigh (which is in its 19th year). 

Please visit our website regularly for updates on all events within the county
