I just started practising fire dancing, or fire twirling, the other day. Found myself a couple of shoe laces, and some old socks. Since then I have been battering my lampshade to pieces.I'm a student over in Galway, for those of you who don't know it, it's on the west coast of Ireland. I first saw a girl fire dancing about a month or two ago at a beach party. And I was fascinated.Just wondering if theres anyone about that does fire dancing over here, in Galway or down in West Cork (thats where I'm from originally). I'm looking for someone to show me the ropes, just the basic things, and to tell me what I'm doing wrong, etc.Well there we goSee you people later------------------Don't bolt your door with a boiled carrot...

Posted:I was in Galway a couple of years ago, beautiful place. I had my first Irish pint of Guinness in Galway, so much better there then what they try to pass off as Guinness here in the states. Anyway, good luck with the fire. I started a few months ago, and every question I've had there was on answer for somewhere on this website. Good luck.

Posted:Ooh ooh ooh, *;ooks all excited* I know Clonakilty and Dunmanway. Cork is my most favouritest place in the world. In fact I'd be living there right now if it wasn't for the nightlife being better in Sheffield.Oh and the girls have such a wonderful accent.....*wanders off to be fickle elsewhere*
