Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann

The traditional music defenders of Monkstown have been notoriously lax in ensuring the availability of the material recorded under CCÉ’s auspices. Virtually nothing is available apart from a few recent CDs (asterisked), though the Monkstown shop does still have a few copies of some cassettes. North American tour albums are indicated by a double asterisk. All gaps are marked in red font.

Many thanks to Frank Dalton and Alistair Banfield for their assistance in compiling this discography.
