Fáilte (Welcome) to the
Clifford-Hoban Branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann!

Santa Cruz/Monterey, CA

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (pronounced "coal-tus kyol-tory air-un") is an international organization dedicated to the advancement of traditional Irish music, language, dance, and culture. Translation from the Irish (Gaelic) name is roughly "A Gathering of Irish Musicians."

The organization (often called CCE) was founded in Ireland in 1951, at a time when Irish music and other traditions were in danger of being ignored. Since then, thousands of people in CCE have helped to propagate and invigorate traditional Irish culture. CCE has no political or religious agenda, and you do not have to be Irish to participate.

Logo The Clifford-Hoban branch of CCE existed for about ten years and phased out in 2009. Please see the "CCE links" page to connect with other CCE chapters.
