Posted:Hello, hello and welcome to the all-new, shiny thread for fire dancers, spinners, object manipulators, drummers, musicians and anyone else interested in these arts anywhere in Ireland.



Our community started coming together a few years ago, and it's grown to include people from all over the country...



If you are new to poi or staff or spinning stuff and want to meet up with any of the Irish spinners, please post in this thread, introduce yourself and feel free to come along to the workshops, gatherings or events that get talked about.



Also, if you'd like to be on my mailing list for fire gatherings and other juggling events, please PM me your email address and I'll add it. The fire gathering takes place fortnightly in Belfast, but it's one way to keep in touch with everyone.



So welcome, and hope to see you soon wave

Posted:you could hold them in your fist and however your want, ideally between your fingers but its all up2u. what type of socks did ya have? best idea is get into pennys and get a set of over the knee socks and stick a juggling ball in each and you get a temp set...

btw, if the ongoings in Irish juggling and circus acts you can have a look at

Just to let you all know, in case you haven't seen the stickers starting to pop up all over the place there is going to be the 1st ever proper anti-prohibition march on 6TH MAY (jay-day!!!) starting at 2 p.m from Parnell Sq east...

It will be really worth it to go to big up the numbers and get everybody you know who might be interested to come too and lets have a good party and peaceful civil disobedience protest!

Take care everybody, hope to see you all there or after my smelly exams
