Dancing update!

The stage has just received a wash, cut and blow-dry... or something that seemed similar to ChaosCentral's eyes.  Lots of teachers with scissors, buckets and mops, and then towels giving the stage some tender loving care and attention.

And now the gaffer tape is going down... seems like a rather unusual salon :)

Gourmet food report


Can highly recommend the coffee and chocolate crackles!

Also, don't forget to buy your tickets for the raffle, look at the range of prizes...

Around the feis...










Dancers getting ready and in marshalling...






We have fabulous facilities!

For children, or bored adults behaving like children, we have an mazing play centre with all sorts of activities and a separate colouring-in area - where is Sean O'Brien? :)


There is a full range of vendors for all your dancing needs...





And of course, the world-famous INDA canteen with an extensive range of hot and cold delicacies... including chocolate crackles!  Expect gourmet food reports during the weekend :)
