Posted:Wowey guys, loving da help lovely people...!!

James, getting pretty good response. Have put few signs up around Dublin city and people have gotn bak to me thru that. Art and Hobby shp etc..
Any1 who would do the same in their local poi selling shop around Ireland, I'd be much appreciative!! My email address is lovelylaudie@hotmail.com You can put that on the notice.
So basically its the World Cultures Festival in Dun Laoghaire. I asked them could we have a day for a poi workshop, they liked the idea. Just need to get as many people as possible. We need to make poi for people to practice with. And of course, people who will be around end of August to teach the curious people who wana get involved!!
All levels purleese, duno the situation with fire poi yet cos may be problem with insurance or sumat. Wil probably be there for show, or for people who play fairy poi and wana try fire. Keep suggestions coming....
Anyway, yiz have me email address, if u want more info, or want me to keep u personally informed, mail me. Doncha know....
Faberge and Clare, please giza mail n we kan chat proper bout da whole affair!!!!

smile) xx

Posted:Hola!
Yep, all will be good...
No poi shops up here tho, mainly cos noone's really seen firedancing before.
I've sent you an email Laudie, so you can let me know your plans.
Btw, what do you guys think about getting together to do something on July 11 up this side?!
It might be a silly idea, but July 11 is the night the loyalists light their bonfires for July 12 'celebrations'.
Over the years it's become a fairly negative thing, alot of aggressiveness, drunkenness and fighting - certainly not something everyone and their families can go to.
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in putting on a wee show on the night of July 11 as a kindof alternative for people to go to.
Show people that fire can be used in a beautiful, positive way...
It wouldn't be in any way political, just providing something else for people to go to... so many people, on both sides of political opinion, hide inside their houses on that night.
Anyways, have a think about it... if a group of you are up for it, I'll try to get something organised...
thanks lads beerchug

Laura, I advise you to edit your post and change your email address to this:
loveleylaudie at hotmail dot com or it'll get picked up by spam bots and it'll get sold into slavery.

For Poi, go to Penny's and they sell long knee length boot socks in pretty colours. They're only 3 quid a pop. Then fill a bag with rice and stick that in the bottom. Best poi you'll find. smile
