About the Dún Uladh Cultural Resource Centre
Dún Uladh is Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann’s Regional Resource Centre for the mid-Ulster Region. Founded in 1951, with world-wide branches, Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann is the primary Irish organisation dedicated to the service and promotion of the music, song, dance and language of Ireland.
The mid Ulster region incorporates Counties Antrim, Derry, Donegal, Down & Tyrone. Dún Uladh, along with the 6 other Meitheal Regional Centres across Ireland, makes the Comhaltas vision to give people genuine access to the traditional arts a reality. This is a unique centre for authentic Irish traditions, promoting Irish music, song, dance, drama and other native art forms, situated in the heart of Ulster.
The centre provides facilities for Comhaltas members as well as for the public, coming from across the region and across the island of Ireland. It hosts performances ranging from professionally produced concerts to informal sessions. The Centre is also home to music classes, seminars and workshops for musicians and office bearers as part of the Comhaltas development plan.
