Posted:Hello there m'luvely Irish spinning types,

Hope you all had a great time at Oxegen... sorry I couldn't be there, slight f**k up with the tickets, but I'm sure it was great (if a bit wet).

James, good luck with the travelling, hope you have a marvellous time and might see you somewhere in SE Asia come Christmas...

Anyways, I'm definitely heading down to this Ballina street festival in Mayo at the weekend, sounds like its going to be a good laugh. I'm heading down all by myself, but Helen said there's going to be a couple of girls spinning (one who does poi on stilts?!)

So is anyone else thinking of going?

PM me with your mobile and I'll see you there smile

Take care, have fun
xx

Posted:Faberge, I think I'm staying at a hostel on the Saturday night... which will be grand, you should think about it - it'll be a laugh smile

And Gnorc, I haven't heard of anyone from Navan, but I think most firegroups are going to this - definitely Streetwise from Belfast and a few others - might meet them there!

Take care xx

Aidan and Lisa - where were you two?!!!

I met up with 3 lovely spinners from Dublin, the parade was ok (lots to see, fun and games), but I was f*cking wrecked by the end of it.

Good fun tho...
Sorry I didn't see you guys...

We'll have to get something else sorted.

take care,

Maybe one of the dublin girlies could suggest a time and a place? We are driving up on sunday. Not sure what our german guests plans are but I am defo available. i know they would love to see some poi though... maybe even learn some...



Maybe we should start an Ireland thread? See as how we are not goin to mayo any more.



*edited for stupidity*

We are driving up on friday night and will be there all weekend, guests are flying out on sunday so hows about saturday night?

Posted:ha ha ha, what was the name of one of those Riverdance spin-offs.... Feet of Flames... or something like that ubbloco

sunday sounds good. i'll definitely (try) teaching your guests if they want.

if we wanna burn then we'll have to take it out of the city, perhaps to a beach or the phoenix park. stephen's green would be a good place to meet if you're all arriving up from cork early-ish, but they lock up before dark.

laura, where are you.....? waddaya reckon?
