Comhaltas has published an updated Child Protection Policy for the protection of children, teachers and adults involved in all Comhaltas activities, for implementation in all Comhaltas units. This will have far-reaching implications on how we as a branch conduct classes, sessions, ceili’s etc We are asked to inform you as a Comhaltas member of the existence of the Child Protection Policy. If you would like a copy please contact:


It is common practice at Ballinspittle-Riverstick-Goggins Hill Comhaltas events for photographs to be taken for archival purposes. Photographs are also sometimes published on the branch website; however no child is ever named or identified. If you do not wish your child’s photograph to be taken at future Ballinspittle-Riverstick-Goggins Hill Comhaltas events, please send a letter expressing this wish to the branch email . If we do not hear from you, it will be assumed that you consent to your child’s photograph being taken and published on the branch website.
