Subject: trying to make a budget... Questions about travel to All Irelands


Author:

Date Posted: 13:24:03 05/27/15 Wed

When you fly to All Irelands, do you fly to Shannon or Kerry Airport, and how do you get from airport to Killarney? (renting a car is not an option for us).

I thought it was more common to fly into Shannon, but when I google public transportation from Shannon to Killarney it looks like it will take a LONG time. Any suggestions?

Traveling out of Boston. First time to All Irelands. THANK YOU!

Now you can get the same great Feistan color at home. Feistan at Home is different from the self tanners that you're used to using.

1. You control the darkness
(Regular dark for a weekend feis, super dark for a major or anywhere in between)

2. Achieve the color you want in a single day application.
(The days of starting to tan on Tuesday for a weekend feis are over)

[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 10:20:14 05/23/15 Sat

The 4th Annual Murray Academy Feis is next Sunday, May 31 and we look forward to welcoming our friends from New England and beyond! This one promises to be our biggest and best yet! Here is the latest news:

• VENUE CHANGE: The feis will now be held at the Cooperative Middle School in Stratham, NH, 100 Academic Way, Stratham, NH 03885. We were informed just recently that the original venue had been mistakenly over-booked and that a 3-day dance competition was taking precedence over us…really?! That’s okay, though, as we’ve now arranged for this new location that is as close or even closer for most competitors. We are very excited to have the feis here! A facility map will be posted on our website.

• SCHEDULE: The schedule is finalized and has been posted to our website, www.murrayacademyfeis.com. Please note that we hope to begin promptly at 8:00 in order to end as early as possible in the afternoon. Dancers should be ready 30 minutes ahead of scheduled time.

• UPDATES AND FREE DRAWINGS: Updates this coming week leading up to the feis, such as the breakfast and lunch menu, will be posted on our website, Facebook page (Murray Academy Feis) and Twitter (@MurrayFeis). Be sure to follow closely as we will be announcing the winner of our free drawings. Starting Monday, we will be drawing the name of a competitor each day this week who will receive a reserved and personalized parking space at the feis, closest to the building!

• ADJUDICATOR REPLACEMENT: We would like to welcome Kerry Broderick from New York, who will be replacing Byron Tuttle, who is not available to join us this weekend."

• Our medals, trophies and sashes have arrived, and our Murray Moose are here, anxiously waiting to be adopted! We look forward to seeing our feis friends, old and new…thanks to all our registrants for choosing to attend the Murray Academy Feis this spring!

Anything I should know about the venue? Parking? Any costume rules I should be aware of? Make up/hair etc? The syllabus is really small compared to what I have seen from feising in the South.... We'll be visiting family in CT then driving up that morning for the feis so we wont be worried about a hotel. She will be dancing U12 Novice and Prizewinner. Thanks in advance!
