Hello, hello and welcome to the thread for all Irish fire dancers, spinners, object manipulators, drummers, musicians and anyone else interested in these arts in Ireland.



This thread was started nearly a couple of years ago now... and it's since grown to include more people, gatherings, events, fun and games than we had thought possible.



And it's still growing - so if you're new to the arts, or want to meet up with any of us, please post at the end of this thread to introduce yourself... or send me a PM with your email address and I'll add your name to our mailing list.



There are spinners, dancers and manipulators all over the country, and you'll find lots of them on here... don't be shy, we're nice biggrin



So welcome, and hope to see you soon hug

hey tesso.

not sure about outdoor gatherings in dub, what with the weather n all. but there sure are plenty of people up for a spin out and about the place. And there is the juggling clubs.

And the Dublin Juggling Convention in March. Always good for a savage burn.

This is a pretty useless post, coz im not in Dublin. But Barry aka The Good Doctor, along with few more are and should be able to sort that craving out for you smile

Fancy a trip to Belfast for the Juggling Convention?

Love is the law.

Hello and welcome Tesso!!

Could you PM me your email address? I'll add you to our community mailing list thing (click on my name to the left, then choose 'Send a Private Message')

That way you can keep in touch with everyone...

And that goes for all other lurkers and people whose email address I don't have yet... am trying to get the mailing list up and running again soon, so come the summer we don't have to keep texting people - cos it's too expensive biggrin

Everyone will be able to post, so if you know of anyone who'd like to be included, PM me the address.

Take care, and hope to see you in Belfast Tesso!

Barry, am having huge difficulties texting you today, so yes, you are definitely staying with us... but I haven't decided whether or not to drive or get taxi's etc... frown

There's loads of people staying here, so some people will have to share a big taxi anyways...
