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:Hey, went to Tara last night and it was brilliant. There where only like 8 or 9 people doing poi, juggling, staff etc, but there was a huge crowd of drummers, pagans, druids etc. A few people I was with put on a brilliant fire show, first time I ever saw fire breathing in real life eek it was really cool and all the pagans etc loved it. I got some of it on film but I don't know how it worked out, I have to check it when I get home. I was talking to some people and they said it would probably be over by the weekend. Is anyone planning on heading down at the weekend?

Posted:Just to remind people that "Trinity Juggling" is now in Merrion Square near the playground for the summer (that's Tuesdays from 7-9:30pm ), or until the end of July anyway when hopefully the security guards and higher up folk who started giving hassle will have forgotten all about it. In general they're normally pretty good, letting us have fire shows and the like on campus, so I don't want to create problems for the future.
