“There are two age groups, U12 and U15, with prizes for best overall and most original projects. We are asking individuals or families to prepare a project on the history of any of the following categories:

1. A well-known musician, singer, dancer, storyteller in your local area or Comhaltas branch who would have knowledge of the Irish traditions and cultures down through the years.

2. An event/activity/custom that used to or still takes place in your area/branch e.g. Rambling House, Crossroads Dancing.

3. Any one-off event e.g. concert involving well known musicians, a book publication, a branch celebration, anniversary or commemoration.”
