Ceol an Gheimhridh is a set of competitions that is run outside of the annual Fleadh Cheoil.
It is run during the Winter months as the name suggests and it aims to establish standards, provide inter-branch activity and to include as many branch members as possible.
Historically, it was run throughout the country, but now it is only Munster Comhaltas that continues the tradition.
The format of competitions differs from the Fleadh Cheoil in that there are only 2 age categories - U11 and U14 and the competitions are based on instrument families - wind, reed, and string. The popular trio competition in the Fleadh is replaced by the less common quartet competition
