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

flip, will give you a shout when I get there. I arrive on the 14th, which I suspect is a Friday, and leave on the Monday, so not much time at all. Looked at a map and its a tiny place, so getting around to the West doesn't look that hard. Can't wait, this promises to be jugs of fun...


Don't worry, be happy...

Posted:Hi all.

I'm a crazy Clown, Fire artist, Balloon animal fabricator and up close newbie magic wannabie. Just arived to northern Ireland a few weeks ago. Originally From sweden but I'm staying here for a year as a volunteer at Corrymeela Center in Ballycastle (Antrim). So if your ever in the neighbourhood just pop in and say hi.

I was going to the Pixy festival in The botanic garden "Belfast" but Firepoise I'm sorry to say that my duties required me elsewhere.

Ballycastle? that's one of my fav spots in the country. be sure to make it over to Rathlin island at some stage, it's a beauuuuutiful spot ubblove it's also the spot where i first started spinning so i hold it rather close to my heart.

AND.... it's also the spot where i met a lovely boy named Brian ubblove who's probably reading this right now but needs encouragement to come & register... tongue

ubblol

can't wait to see you all Clonakilty, hope to leave at the crack of dawn tomorrow so should be there by midday... :wiggles with excitement:

Posted:Nice one to everyone that made it down to the Clon Juggling Convention, and helping to make it work! Even with the serious short term organisation it turned out class
I still can't believe we organised a juggling convention, and now that its been done once, next year ( or whenever we want) it will be much easier. Oh I do love this learning and evolving stuff I've been hearing of! biggrin

Looking forward to Tralee!
Was thinking about going to galway to practice poi workshops...I need to figure out how to do this properly.....
Anyway anyone fancy a lovely long spin in galway next week, Galway juggle club is on Mon + Tues I think.

Hope to see ya all soon

Posted:Hey there, folks,

I've been intermittently lurking on this thread, pretending Ireland is still 'home' and you guys are still my regular, 'see you next weekend' type friends, and not posting because I'm trying not to get too home-sick...

I'm coming back to Belfast! bounce bounce2

*throws back head, closes eyes and thinks wistfully of long fire sessions on freezing cold nights*

I'll turn up sometime around the 22nd October, and staying just long enough to go back to Perth for my first family Christmas since 1994.

See you all soon!!

clap


I am glad this is an international game - I learnt in school that the world spins, and now I know it's true.

Ronan, as ever i'm with you on the juggly front in Gaillimh next week, anyone who fanci8es that buzz give a shout and sure we'll get together.

Posted:Thanks... Knew I'd see Clare around, but it's twice as good to have twice the friends there! Looking forward to seeing you all again.

I'll be spending the next two weeks in a remote Scottish wood, with a staff spinner and assorted others, so I'll be working on getting all my new moves back up to scratch... Did I mention I had my first go with fire staff - single and doubles - a couple of weeks ago? Well, that's not much to look at yet, but that's ok, it leaves room for improvement.

already in belfast. just about to set out flat/room-hunting. actually i can probably only afford a room, seeing as i'm not really willing to work (any more than necessary smile) but as long as i find somewhere with an exceptionally high ceiling i'll be grand... weavesmiley juggle weavesmiley

*wonders when we're gonna get a long overdue staff smiley*

ronan, we should just cancel winter and insist that the weather gods grant us acceptable conditions for outdoor spinning for the rest of the year.

see you guys soon hug
