Craobh (pronounced "crave") Dugan-O'Looney, the local branch of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann (pronounced "coal-tuss kyol-tory erin"), was established in 1978 and is part of a world-wide organization which has over 400 branches. Headquartered in Ireland, our mission is the preservation and promotion of Irish traditional music, song, dance and language. Chapter activities include lessons, sessions, workshops, and performances.
