Irish Green Gathering and sucky news :(

Postby pajo on Thu Jan 29, 2009 9:22 pm

Wasnt entirely sure whether to stick this events or not.. but, a lil bad news on IGG (Irish Green Gathering) for those that were interested... due to a few problems, the IGG isnt being held at all this year :( Tho it IS hoped that it'll b back in 2010! And I shall b in need of bodies to come and partake in fighting and merriment XD

Also, while I think of it, the Michealmas festival is 99% certain for september, the weekend of the 26th/27th I believe, and I would like to get together a good few bodies for that... maybe 16-18 combatants and a small living history display, so anyone interested, pease do contact me. its an easy goin wee thing, nothing to serious, its all about the craic, and really getting the public to have a laugh and enjoy. The entry money last year went to getting a de-ib fo the village (tinnahinch/graigenamanagh), and I believe the money will go to some other worthy cause this year.

shame to hear that. Theres way too few reenactment gigs at music festivals.

The Michealmas festival sounds interesting though.

well so far I am informed that michealmas IS going ahead.. so hears hoping there'l b no change and that the weather will b good... birthday u say panda? drinking u say panda? Yes says Pajo! As I say, I would like to get together a good few bodies for this one, I would LOVE to have a nice wee living history display and a good handful of fighters, evn a few as 14 fighters would b fine. so folks, iof ur free, give me a shout!

Some food should b provided, and there shall b portaloos and campspace for all. Its only a small festival (mostly the locals etc in attendance), but its in a nice town (tinnahinch side of graigenamanagh), right beside the river, loverly place altogether. Kids are more than welcome too by the by folks! its a family thing like.

OMG, I will so be coming to Graig this year! The craic was mighty last year. I'm delighted it's happening again. Thanks for letting us know early, so I can put it on the calendar. ;)
