The Winter Solstice is over for another year

The dancers are gone as are the adjudicators and the process of breaking down the stage equipment is underway.

16 years recall sets are finished

Wonderful dancing from all competitors, we now have the soft shoe recall and wait for the results to be calculated.

16 years - half way there!!

Still quite a few spectators in the hall from this afternoon's sections - the vendors have left, the canteen is shut but the audience is attentive. The adjudicators are very alert and watching the dancers as they travel across the stage, and Sean is still playing beautifully after all this time.
Familiar (if embarrassed) faces and some of the 16 years marshalling - and doing some upper body exercise?

16 years second round now completed!!

13 years and 14 years results NOW!!

Progress report

16 years have almost completed their second round and your faithful correspondent has been assisting the manual collation of marks - the good news is that the 13 years and 14 years are now completed, entered on the computer and ready for their presentations.

They are also on this computer and will be displayed after the presentations, even though I have them now - ah, the anticipation....

16 years

The stage has been swept, the 16 years are marshalling and dancing for the final section of the Winter Solstice.

Technology crash!!!

Due to a technology glitch in the computer used for collating marks and producing the information used by the organisers, marks are now being collated and produced manually. That means that this blog will take a little longer to get them to you...stay tuned as the 14 years soft shoe recall is almost completed...

14 years sets are complete, soft shoe recall is starting

The feis is starting to wind down - the 14 years have almost completed their recall sets and the Aisling helpers are beginning to relax. Only one age group left and not much likelihood of a rush of paying customers at the door.

On the other hand, there is still time to phone a friend here at the feis to get some raffle tickets and the chance to win a fabulous prize!

14 year sets

They are being danced in the same order in which they danced in the first two rounds, so if you have a program to which you can refer, you will know how far along they are. The dancer on stage is #18.

14 year sets have started with #14

14 year recalls are:

2, 5, 8, 11, 13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 22, 24, 25, 30, 35 and 36 - starting at #14 after the 13 years soft shoe recall dance

Final 13 year recall set dance now being danced

Competitor #15 is dancing, which will be followed by the 13 year soft shoe recall.

13 year sets have started with #17

14 years second round is now completed, they are marshaling the 13 year recall sets and giving the stage a thorough clean. They have been sweeping the stage between each age group and sometimes between first and second rounds - not a diamante or feather in sight on the floor!!!

Feis scenes

Only about fourteen more 14 years left for their second round

Some 14 years after their second round

About 12 have danced, so we are almost a third of the way through. That means that the 13 year recall set should start in about30 minutes.
