Subject: RE: Irish Music and Religion
Fionn, your post reads as if the North is the norm for Comhaltas branches--it isn't. Again, Comhaltas was founded in and remains headquartered in Dublin. A country which remains 95% Catholic.
Well behind the times though Comhaltas and many other conservative Irish arts, language, and cultural organizations are, they do have the right to remain so, as long as their membership wishes.
