Ceol sa Ghleann is a traditional arts project based in Glencolmcille, County Donegal, Ireland. It was set up in the early 1990’s by the late Donegal fiddler, James Byrne,  with the specific aim of preserving, promoting and developing the unique and rich heritage of traditional music, song and dance of south west Donegal, in particular Glencolmcille’s longstanding fiddle tradition, through a wide and varied programme of classes, concerts, seminars  and workshops throughout the year. The group also organizes two annual events that have a burgeoning reputation and have established themselves on the festival calendar: 

Feile Ealaion Traidisiunta Ghleann Cholm Cille
held annually during the Easter Holidays

Scoil Samraidh Fidilereacht James Byrne Fiddle Summer School
held annually in late July.

      Ceol sa Ghleann,
      County Donegal



  Phone: 087 2873576

Carrying on the tradition Ceol sa Ghleann especially promotes the involvement of young people in traditional arts to ensure the continuation of traditional music, song and dance as elements of contemporary Irish culture. Classes and workshops are well attended by young people and children from Glencolmcille and surrounding areas. The organizers see these young people as the bearers of tradition for future generations.
