Cois na hAbhna is the regional base of Comhaltas Ceoiltóirí Éireann for the Meitheal region. It houses the Comhaltas Regional Archive in its Sean Reid Library. It also has an auditorium for céilí dances and concerts, a traditional-style Irish kitchen, a bar/teach cheoil where lively weekly sessions are held and classrooms for music lessons.
The building was constructed during the early 1980s by local Comhaltas members, who worked on a voluntary basis, and was officially opened on 17th March 1983 (St. Patrick’s Day). It has recently undergone substantial extension and refurbishment and was officially reopened on July 3rd 2009.
