Bray Comhaltas is part of the extended community of branches all across Ireland. Each year these branches gather for the Fleadh to celebrate our music and dance heritage together. Local branches within the County host the County Fleadh in rotation between April and June, the Provincial Fleadh takes place in July and the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil na Éireann takes place in August.
Competitions in all instruments in singing and in dance are part of the Fleadh experience where musicians compete in a series of qualifying rounds up to All Ireland Level, however the Fleadh is not solely about competition. The Fleadh revolves around the act of sharing and exchange, Students who decide to participate in competition will adopt a renewed focus bringing a motivation to do the best as possible. It should be stressed however that being involved in competitions is one very small part of becoming a musician.
