Posted:Hello there...



You must be searching for fire dancers, spinners, object manipulators, drummers, musicians and anyone else interested in these arts in Ireland!



Hellos and welcome biggrin hug



We have a small community here, but it's growing very fast and there are people spinning stuff right across the country.



If you're new to the arts, or want to meet up with any of us, please post on the Irish dancing 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...



So welcome, and hope to see you soon wave

Posted:Hello all!
I don't suppose there are any Galway-ens on the board? I spoke to some spinners from various places around Ireland who were in Galway for a couple of nights, and one of them said that Galway probably had the largest congregation of twirlers in Ireland. Where are you all that's what I want to know?

I'm from Australia, can't do poi, but am a beginner staff twirler. I'd love to meet others in Galway, because I'm going to be here for a while, and I don't know anyone other than my housemates and a friend I met at Barnacles Hostel!

Hope you guys can help me out! smile

Hi Claire smile



Good to have more Dublin HoPpers about the place.

Whereabouts in Dublin are you Claire? And will we see you at the Dublin Juggling Convention next month?



By the way, you'll generally find all of the Irish spinners hanging out in The All Ireland Fire Community Thread Come in and help yourself to some tea and a brownie.

I'm way down the southside myself, in Ballinteer. And juggling conventions are there for you to improve at - the perfect opportunity to ask loads of questions and learn loads of stuff. No previous knowledge required smile
