Summer 2005


The progress on the new Development Programme of Comhaltas has been unprecedented. The response at home and abroad has helped to underline the vaccum which existed and the desire for a radical response to the ravages of globalisation.

The partnership which has emerged between community and public interests has been an inspiration to all who promote the cultural identitiy of the nation. With euro15m capital assets already pledged by regional interests, the Development Programme is well ahead of target.

The 5-Year Development Programme was launched at Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann in Clonmel last year. This year at the Fleadh in Letterkenny the first five Regions will be launched. Ní neart go cur le chéile.
