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:hi all,
happy holidays to all this christmas, enjoy the happy season.
On tuesday the twelveth of january there is a party in the Victoria hotel with a renegade, story telling, music fun and frolics to celebrate the life of a juggling community in kahoots with the greater galway community over the last years.
Everyone is cordially invited and most encouragingly encouraged to do a little piece, of a big piece, or alternitively just to stick foreign bodies up their nostrils and such.
Happy new year everyone!
James, if your still in Gambia wish Simon and Emma a happy christmas from me, and Keanie too if you see him,
hugs,
smile
