“Where traditions come alive”

Cnoc na Gaoithe (Windswept Hill), the Tulla Comhaltas Cultural Centre’s mission is to promote, preserve and showcase the rich Irish traditions and culture of Tulla and the East Clare area.

The centre is situated in the heartland of East Clare, on top of the famous Hill of Tulla, an area renowned for traditional Irish music, song and dance. The name Cnoc na Gaoithe translates in English as the Windswept Hill, made famous by the late Kerry man Bryan MacMahon in his song “Lament for Tommy Daly” in praise of the great Tulla and Clare goalkeeper, Dr. Tommy Daly

Cnoc na Gaoithe

On this day 7 years ago, 16th October 2011, Tulla Comhaltas Cultural Centre was launched by Deputy Eamon O'Cuiv, T.D.

The name Cnoc na Gaoithe was a mere thought in Sr Eileen's head.
Fr Martin and Fr Brendan blessed the building and they surely did bless it !

Seven years later, Cnoc na Gaoithe, Tulla Comhaltas Cultural Centre is thriving. The former Convent of Mercy has been fully restored to it's former glory with a museum, archive, education rooms and most recently grade A accommodation on the first floor.
To top this off almost exactly seven years to the day we received a major grant from the Department of Community & Rural Affairs to build an extension which is necessary now due to the success of Cnoc na Gaoithe Comhaltas Centre.
From small acorns great oak grow!

To the Sisters of Mercy for donating this magnificent building, to Comhaltas H.Q. for having faith in us and for supporting us every step of the way, to all the people who have supported our vision and given us the support and courage to keep going when times were challenging, to all who attend classes and support our events and endeavours we are very grateful.
