Home Page - Failte!
Welcome to the website for the Cooley~Keegan San Francisco branch of CCÉ.
We encourage everyone to take a glimpse into the wonderful culture of Ireland. Come join us for a great time with music, dance, and special dancing or céilí dancing, let our excellent dance instructors put you at ease.
Set dance classes are being held at the United Irish Cultural Center on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. Please consult our calendar for times and updates on these classes.
We hope you take a few minutes to tour our site. Be sure to click Announcements, Events, and Calendar to see what's happening in our branch and surrounds.
Go raibh míle maith agaibh!
The end of another busy year is upon us. Our branch sponsored a number of activities from céilís to singing sessions to language classes to music workshops for children. It is nice to see so many people attending our events.
See cceconvention.com for details.
Some of our members traveled afar to participate in dancing events from Fresno, CA to Portland, Chicago, and even Japan! Next year, we look forward to the 2024 North American Convention, which will be held in Buffalo, New York in early April.
Comhaltas Big Draw 2023
The drawing was held in Dublin in early December and was a fundraiser for the CCE branches. We are proud to announce that the grand prize winner is a member of our branch, none other than our Chair, Susan Keith! Now 5,000 euro richer, a trip to Ireland is probably on the radar!
We are excited and ready to share the story of the Cooley-Keegan branch and our West Region. Please feel free to share this to ensure the success of the project. We are delighted that it is available for viewing by Comhaltas members and supporters around the world.
