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:Ermmm, what does it mean?

Also, if this name is going to be used for community performances (as it probably will be after the St Patricks day thing), you should maybe include others views too. I'll ask when I send out this email tomorrow.

Though the mail is going to be a bit vague biggrin

Posted:it's irish for "light"

like aidan said, we just needed this in a hurry for the parade people, it doesn't have to be forever. phonetics in irish are completely off the wall, and unless you've learnt the language, pronounciation can be drag.

even the word "tine" which means fire can be easily mispronounced

i've heard "teen" & "tyne"

whereas it should be "tinn-eh"

like i said, didn't mean to step on anyone's toes, this is just for the parade...

Posted:Well I have to say that Dublin was fecking class! biggrin Had the best weekend in a long while, lovely to meet all that were there. A few nights of complete madness for me, next time I WILL be up before 3 for juggleification! smile (yeah right).
I hadn't planned on giving any workshops, but hope that that random mess of moves gave some of ye new ways to play. 20th June is Galway convention and am supposed to be putting on a poi workshop there so will try to put a bit of structure to things...
Is there any talk of putting photos or videos from the weekend on the net?
If any of ye Dubliners know Lee the juggler please ask him for my Radio Bemba cd (was forgotten in his cd player I think), I'm sure I'll see ye before him. BJC anyone? sounds like a plan I do believe.
Is there anything happening in Cork over the next few days? Would be delightful to meet up with ye again smile Be down there tomorrow night if anyone up to something (or not up to anything) give me a shout. Nice one!
Anyway, once again so good to meet ye, shall be seeing y'all soon

Posted:Hey ronan, I'm sure Lisa told you at the weekend, but some of the lads are taking part in the Cork paddys day festival.

However, we're all meeting in Dublin on March 18 (I think), before heading up to Tara on March 19... we're doing some filming for the HoP dvd, hopefully.

I was going to go to the BJC, but plans have changed and I'm heading elsewhere instead... however, why don't you come over to Falmouth on Easter weekend?
Check out the Falmouth threads for more details, but it's going to be huge.
There's about 100-odd fire spinners coming... and I'm going to that.

Take care, hope to meet you soon

Posted:I thought the staff flags were such a good idea that I Made some with gaffer tape and material biggrin rolleyes.
The leading flag works for me but the one at other end doesnt fly well. Mine are just rectangles though, so your triangles might work much better.

absolutely! i haven't even picked up the poor twins all week eek i'm in love with my poi again biggrin

remember i could only do 1 half of the btb waistwrap? well, tried it again last nite and hey, whaddayaknow.... ta da.... like i'd been doing if for weeks biggrin

thanks again ronan, for the inspiration hug

by the way, not sure if you're in cork already, but there's a good few of us heading down on wednesday (16th) evening if you're still about....

hi Gnor ubbrollsmile

did you fasten your flags to the staff with tape, or are they stitched in a way that they slide over the pole and glide around the pole? that's the only way i can think of to stop them wrapping and tangling up.

i have triangles on mine too, two triangles on each end of each staff. 8 in total, lots of tails, like 4 pairs of poi really biggrin

have a loverly weekend all hug

Lisa peace

Posted:cant see how to attach flag without allowing it to slide without it sliding right off the end confused. Ive made the flags fairly big though. If they were smaller the problem would be smaller to. I punished the naughty material by making it into flags. wink

Posted:yeh, you've gotta attach something to the end (like the plastic cap from the end of the leg of a chair of sumthin') to stop the flag sliding off. if it can rotate perfectly around the staff then it shouldn't wrap or tangle, took me a few attempts before i had it though...

wish you much sucess oh flaggy one hug

yes Clare, i was definitely inspired at the DJC, but to be honest i had felt incredibly guilty about neglecting my poi for so long, poor little darlings, it's not like they had done anything wrong at all. all they needed was some love and tlc....

but now i feel torn, coz now Castor & Pollux will be feeling unloved... oh what to do.... what to do....

if only i were an octopied.... ubbrollsmile

Dammit. That's you and James (deepsoulsheep)... rolleyes

Nevermind, hopefully I'll see you somewhere biggrin

Lisa, yes indeed missus, your poi were unloved and rejected - tis a tragedy. Y'see, this is what happens when you are unfaithful. You create lots of unloved toys and end up feeling wracked with guilt... ubblol

Posted:Aggh, im new to this !?

after hearing Clare and lisa go On And On about how great this all is I have finally decided to take a kick in the crotch from technology and learn how to do all this "Forum" malarchy... I thnk i know one or two people here allready which is comforting to say the least.

right, down to business now... I was wondering if any one would be interested in maybe having a wee spin in templebar square, or top of grafton street Thurday night ? I figure alot of people will be in cork, but for those of us stuck behind it may be a chance to make a bit of drinking cash. Im gonna say a meeting time of about 8 ish temple bar square, i will bring fuel.

and looking to the future biggrin anybody want to lend floor space to myself and a mate who will be in the Galway City centre area from 25-29 march ? If floor space is not available, perhaps you could recomend a good park bench for sleeping on, or a near bye field for camping in ? and is it cool to Busk With Fire in Galway ? ??

ubblol ubblol ubblol wink ubblol ubblol ubblol

Sorry for the Long post!
