Comhairle Na Mumhan

October 14, 2022


Comhairle Na Mumhan is shocked and dismayed at the allegations in the media with regards to breaches of the CLRG code of Conduct. We understand that this has been a very challenging time for all members of our dance community.


We welcome the investigation into recent alleged breaches of our code of conduct and stress the critical importance of accountability and transparency in this matter.


We thank all the teachers who reached out to us and voiced their concerns and can assure you that we are making additional changes to the protocols for this year’s Oireachtas naMumhan to ensure that we provide a transparent and equitable competition environment.


We will have a further discussion with teachers to clarify these procedures and protocols. We are committed to providing a level playing field and we will do our best to support our teachers and dancers through these difficult times.
