I have to be honest here until I met Ger the PRO for Comhaltas Douglas I didn’t even know Comhaltas existed. But just a mile from my office they have 300+ children and adults learning music and song every week. I was gobsmacked and so pleased. I spent many happy summers in the Rosmuc Gaeltacht and for several years spoke Irish quite a lot with my kids when they were younger. Both speak it reasonably well not purely because of me but I think they also have a grá For our culture and language.
Saying that I can’t play anything but was very impressed at the size of this group. But they had no website and wanted to have one that showcased their group and also integrated the a bility to take class payments and subscriptions from a third party. We also redesigned their logo which was a bit dated.
The end result is something they are very very happy with and we also have are going to keep the website up to date for them for a modest fee with events news, special dates and so on so they won’t have to worry about it and focus on what they are clearly amazing at – fostering a love of Irish music and culture in the Cork area.
