Interesting things – Comhaltas 2011 Sunday

We were able to start a bit later this morning it being Sunday and all. This was good since bed didn’t rise up and smite us until quite early in the morning.

Padraig started off with the Valentia Right and Left, a fairly simple but fun set.

Unfortunately the workshop was cut short as Padraig and Roisin had to make an earlier than expected flight back to Ireland.

Next up though was the farewell ceili. Nearly four hours of solid dancing.

Even though most people had departed by the last set there was still something around 6-8 sets on the floor!

It was a wonderful weekend full of great music and dance and I look forward to the next convention organized by Tom and Company!

There are more pictures in the Comhaltas 2011 gallery, some videos on my YouTube channel and if you like you can see my twitter posts done live from the convention. I’ll be doing more tagging and linking of things very soon.

Here are links for the doings on Saturday and Friday
