Posted: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

Posted:you may not believe it, but its way cheaper to fly from dublin to cork. the train is 54 or something, but you can fly for less than 40.

unless, of course you have spesific reason to take the train.

Thank you so very much for your time and talent guys. We really appreciate it!



We are very happy about the way that weekend went. biggrin



We believe we got a really great footage and as soon as it's all edited and finished I'll let you guys know. The plan is to show it at the IFI and have a party afterwards. I'll keep you all informed anyway.



Martin: you madman. That planet was awesome....and I don't use the word flippantly! cool

Posted:To everybody regarding the fuel:

My appologies.

I will be looking into fuel info more here on HOP. I was under the impression that Kerosine and parafin are the same thing and the names are used inter changably. I haven't been on top of such details since I was last a regular poster which is over a year and half ago.

I did at that time read that kero was the best fuel to use. I do remember reading before that if a fuel is unsmelly and not smokey it's because it has chemicals added to it which are in fact worse for you.

I at no time before the weekend thought Kero would be bad for you or your wicks, but I hope that goes without saying.

I take on board what you guys were saying about there being different grades or qualitys and all that and again I was not aware of this before the weekend. After talking to Martin I worked hard to find a place that sold kero by the litre. I believed it to be cheaper exactly because it was sold by the litre and was not being sold as lamp oil, not because it was a lower grade.

If anyone feels there wicks have been damaged then pm me and we'll sort it out.

Posted:Tis not so much the wicks James...



Tis the fact that most people felt quite sick (headaches) after using that fuel.



I drove home on Saturday night - three hours in my lil car which was stinking of the stuff...



And I ended up having to stop the car to be sick just outside Belfast. Not good frown



Don't like being sick. ubbcrying



Anyways, I'm sorry I didn't let you know about the fuels sooner, but I thought that as you'd been playing for longer than all of us, you would have known already. smile



As far as I know, parrafin/kerosene are the same thing, but there are loads of different grades. The cheaper the grade, the less refined, and the more filled with toxic nastiness.



That red stuff is about the worst. You can smell it as soon as you open the container... yes it's cheaper (which is good for big gatherings)... but it's not worth it in the horrible feeling you get afterwards.



Anyways, never worry... tis all a learning curve smile hug



Glad the filming went well.



Take care and see you soon
