This is the Mícheál Ó Domhnaill Oregon Branch of Comhaltas, a name we have chosen to honor the late singer, guitar player and Gaelic speaker who contributed so much to the preservation and growth of traditional music and culture here in Portland. Our goal in organizing this branch is to keep those traditions alive, in particular, to marry the music to the dance, both sean-nos, and in particular set dancing, the most popular form of traditional social dance in Ireland.
The Mícheál Ó Domhnaill Oregon Branch is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and one of over 400 branches worldwide. We do not have any religious affiliations and are open to people of all backgrounds.
