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 guys,

A favour to ask towards the EJC from all you Dublin-based spinners and manipulators (of objects, not people.)

This evening we are doing a photocall for a newspaper, so we need as many people to go to Stephen's Green and juggle in the sunshine as possible (not too difficult really, is it?) If you could be there at or before 6.30 tonight - Thursday - because that's when the photographer is expected. Bring props, costumes if you have them/just happen to like them and chill out in the park.

See you there?
