Weekly classes and sessions held in Gaelscoil An tAthair Tadhg Ó Murchú /Gaelscoil na Dúglaise in Douglas. .

The branch in Douglas was formed in 1997 by a group of parents including the first Cathaoirleach, Aislinn Cogan. Craobh na Dúglaise found a wonderful home in Gaelscoil An Athar Tadhg Ó Murchú (Gaelscoil na Dúglaise) in Douglas and has attracted students from all over Cork City, it’s suburbs and beyond. The branch now employs over a dozen teachers who provide classes in Tin Whistle, Fiddle, Flute, Box, Concertina, Banjo, Mandolin, Bodhrán, Harp, Piano, Singing, Drums, Ceili band, Grupa cheoil and session playing. Recently the branch has moved to provide classes in traditional singing, which have proved very popular. Adult classes for all standards are also hugely popular.

The Irish language is an integral part of branch activities and a number of teachers work through the medium of Irish.

As well as competing in Fleadhanna Cheoil, the branch also prepares students for S.C.T. exams and has performed for a variety of events and on radio. Enjoyment through participation in Irish traditional music, song and dance is the principal aim of the branch.
