New age groups agreed at March Comhairle na Mumhan meeting:
•Under 11 & Under 14 on the year of competition to bring age-groups in line with Fleadh
•Céilí Band all must be branch members – Under 14 plus two Under 17’s allowable. Adults/teachers playing in band no longer allowed
•Following discussion group at last year’s convention, there have been requests to promote polka + jig sets – it was agreed to introduce an extra competition for polka and jig sets – just one competition (one age group U14 – any combination of dancers) – one part has to a polka/ jig – the sets must be from Munster.
