Funding

The day to day activities of Comhaltas are funded partly by members, partly from the proceeds of events such as Fleadhanna, and partly from a grant from the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

Culture Ireland is the division of the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht with responsibility for the promotion of Irish arts and artists overseas.

Also, Comhaltas is currently in receipt of a grant from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to support its activities in Britain and North America.
