Claddagh Set 12:17
Caledonian Set 12:35

With the ceili ending at 1:20. The music was performed by the Green Gates Ceili band and friends and was absolutely fantastic. I hope we can bring a CD or two back to share with Club Rince Ghaelaigh.
It was great fun, we learned a fast and frantic Ballingeary Jig Set followed by an easier set whose name I forget at the moment.
As always Padraig and Roisin were great instructors although they’re human too and messed up one set.Â Naturally I have that on video and the rest of the Club Rince Ghaelaigh will see it as Susan and I pass on the sets we’re learning.
Today was the day to do something un-dance like. Susan, Jean and I went on a bus tour of New York. It was an interesting and lazy way to spend the day.
The first day is done. Our legs are tired, I have Oban warming my insides and a beer (Blue Moon) in my hand.
The end of a good day.
The following was the program for the night. The times later on are when the sets started.
North Kerry Set
Baile Bhuirne Jig Set Set 9:20
High Cauled Cap 10:20
Caledonian Set 10:40
Derrada Set 10:55
South Galway (workshop) Set 11:10
Connemara Set 11:15
Rake of Reels 11:35
The last was a collection of reels and each set chose what figures to dance with no breaks at all "between" figures.
