Minister McHugh sanctions grant of €11,000 to Cloughaneely Band

DONEGAL TD and Gaeltacht Minister Joe McHugh has announced that he has sanctioned more than €11,000 from his Department to the Cloughaneely Senior Band to purchase musical equipment.

Buíon Cheoil Sinsear Chloich Cheann Fhaola (Senior Band) was formed in August 2016 after a call for a spontaneous band reunion to welcome home the junior band on their All–Ireland win at Fleadh Ceoil Na hÉirean, that year.

There was a large turnout of past members of the junior band and a decision was taken to form a senior band. One year on and the senior band also took part in the 2017 Fleadh and now has 36 members.

Minister McHugh said: “I’m delighted to help this Senior Marching Band who are promoting our language, music, and our Gaeilge tradition in Cloughaneely.

“All members of the newly formed senior band were previously members of the U-18 junior marching Banna Cheoil Chloich Cheann Fhaola, with years of membership stretching from 1983 until 2014. During that time, collectively they have been All-Ireland Champions at Fleadh Ceoil na hÉireann ten times.

“The formation of the senior band has been a hugely positive move for all those involved and in promoting our language and heritage.

“I have sanctioned €11,111 for the band to purchase musical equipment and I want to wish all those involved continued success in the future.”

This is being sanctioned under the 20 Year Strategy 2010-2030.

€11,000 ceadaithe ag an Aire Stáit McHugh do Bhuíon Cheoil Sinsear Chloich Cheann Fhaola

D’fhogair Joe McHugh, Príomh-Aoire an Rialtais agus Aire Stáit don Ghaeilge, don Ghaeltacht agus do na hOileáin inniu go bhfuil deontas thar €11,000 ceadaithe aige do Bhuíon Cheoil Sinsear Chloich Cheann Fhaola, chun cuidiú leo uirlisí ceoil a cheannach.

Bunaíodh Buíon Cheoil Sinsear Chloich Cheann Fhaola i mí Lúnasa 2016.

Bhí slua ollmór de shean-bhaill ón bhanna sóisearach ann agus rinneadh cinneadh chun banna Sinsearach a bhunú. Bliain ar aghaidh ó shin agus ghlac an Banna Sinsearach páirt i bhFléadh 2017.

Ag fogairt an deontais seo, dúirt an tAire Stáit, “Tá an-áthas orm cuidiú a thabhairt don Bhuíon Cheoil Sinsear seo agus béim faoi léith á chur acu ar theanga, ar cheol agus ar thraidisiún na Gaeilge.

“Bhí na baill ón Bhanna Sinsearach nua-fhoirmithe seo mar bhall den Bhanna Cheoil Sóisearach Chloich Cheann Fhaola faoi-18 roimhe seo, le ballraíocht don Bhanna idir 1983 agus 2014. Le linn na tréimhse sin, bhain siad Fléadh Ceoil na hÉireann deich n-uaire ar fad le chéile.

“Tá deontas suas le €11,111 ceadaithe agam chun cuidiú leo uirlisí ceoil a cheannach, agus guím gach rath orthu amach anseo.”

Is faoi réimse gnímh: an Ghaeltacht de chuid na Staitéise 20 Bliain don Ghaeilge 2010-2030 atá an deontas á cheadú.
