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

How are we all?!

Lisa, first of, great to see you made it back with nothing broken or fractured... am glad you had fun... many hugs and I'll be texting you soon biggrin

Hope all the rest of you guys are good - have a great time at Uberstaff, all who are going. bounce

I am having much fun and frolics over here. Have hardly done any spinning yet, but that will change this week - also, Vance has a particularly lovely acrylic CJ ball, so I'm having fun and games with that.

Btw, the Falmouth report is a little late redface, suffice to say it was splendid and much firey goodness and fun was had.

All the Englishy types are marvellous and friendly and technically brilliant... I think they liked the firehands biggrin

Take care
Love and hugs

I'd also like to announce the opening of the

This is being set up by myself and amelie and at the moment takes place once a week in the Peoples Park at the bad stand for 'Circus Sunday'. Its free and its for everyone.
