Hello, I’m Sue Spellman, and current Vice Chair for Comhaltas North America, having previously been on the Midwest Regional (County) Board & St. Louis Irish Arts Board totaling 32 years. I have a special interest in wishing to keep the Irish Tradition alive & progressing thru CCÉ North America, as my mom was from Tralee, County Kerry, by staying connected to Ireland thru music, song & dance & Comhaltas. I look forward in the coming years doing so & working with our CCÉ NA Team.
