Sarah and Niko say hello, looking for a group

Postby Hedewigis on Wed Jun 03, 2009 12:21 pm

Hello fellow re-enactors,


We moved to the Cork area and are now desperately searching for medieval groups.

To introduce ourselves: We are a German couple with two small kids and we live in Ireland since two years. We did 1180-1230 AD re-enactment in Germany for six years and are about to start a Irish medieval career.

We haven't chosen a time yet (although we begun to sew what according to M. Dunlevy`s “Dress in Ireland” �bona fide for 12th century Ireland)and our knowledge of Irish re-enactment is still quite limited so we want to get to know the scene or camp as guests with some nice re-enactors.

We are equipped with a tent, crockery and dress so


Additionally we would be glad to join/initiate regular “cra�men gatherings”. We �sewing, stitching, woodworks, pottery, dyeing (cloth and bone), hist. dances, spinning and medieval cooking and we would like to learn new skills and Irish designs (patterns, furniture, utilities....). Besides of course it's much more fun to sew your clothes with a beaker of honey wine and nice company ;-)


And what would be the Internet without pictures, so to feed the crowd, here we go, with some of our Medieval Marriage Ceremony celebration pictures (well, actually its was a “revival” of a cas�, which we “abused” for�r cele�tion ;-) )

Greetings from Tir na Spideoga,

Sarah and Niko


P.S.: if somebody knows why we get a lot of these "�" in our p�, please help..probably, because we created the text in OpenOffice3 initially? :?

Yes it seem to be a problem with cut and paste from word processors. If you are doing that to spell check may I recommend Mozilla Firefox web browser, it has a spell check built in that saves my blushes :D

Welcome to the forum and to Irish re-enactment. Shaun is a fine man who will see you right :D

What part of Cork are you in?
Sean is in Limerick so would be a good place to start Also have a look at Mogh ROithhttp://www.moghroith.org/ - they do a lot of craft stuff as well (Ok so I am a member, but I am a member of a lot of groups...some of them even exist)

I like the pics - where were they taken?

nice to see that some other German re-enactors found their to the green isle.

I'm from berlin myself. I'm doing Napoleonic wars, American Civil War and World War 1 here in Ireland.

Sehr Sarah and Niko,
To my knowledge, there are about two dozen re-enactors in Cork City and another dozen scattered around the county who are interested in the medieval period. Craft gatherings tend to be informal affairs arranged between attendees and not posted on the forum.
Herzlich Willkommen in Cork,
Aislinn

The forum seems to take issue with some types of punctuation - in your case it seems to be the quotation marks " you use - and scrambles random letters that follow.
