About Us

At St James the Great our goal is to promote and teach Irish traditional music and culture. It has been this way since 1989 when Canon (now monsignor) Mathew Coakley who was the Parish priest in St James the great teamed up with Rory Campbell and along with the help of many others in the local community opened their doors to all who wanted to learn and play Irish traditional music.

Every week for nearly 30 years our members have got together to learn and develop their talents in all instruments. The majority of our tutors have themselves came through our branch and are now passing on their knowledge and culture to our new members of all ages.

All of our members start with the tin whistle to gain a solid knowledge of Irish music, develop their ear and the ability to read music. After this initial period they will be given the opportunity to move on to a secondary instrument which may be available as a loan from the extensive instrument bank within our branch. This system has proven to help with the rapid progression of all members who show dedication and put in the practice.

We would love for everyone to come along and experience our classes, whether taking part for the first time or joining us from else where. Everyone is welcome.
