Subject: Honestly, I think its cost, across the board. Irish Dance has become a very expensive hobby, and people have now needed to be more selective about which feis they will attend because it's hard for most to compete regularly, as most of us were able to even five years ago. For us, we no longer attend feis that require a stay, and usually focus on the ones that are closer to majors.

In reply to: NE mom 's message, "Remember not so long ago all the feis would be full before the cut off? What has changed? I am particularly surprised about cape cod. A few years ago that would've been closed for registrations at this point. Not looking for trouble, seriously just wondered do you think it's an oversaturation?" on 06:44:57 04/23/17 Sun

I am not attempting to dismiss the expenses of teaching/running a school/running a feis. But the days of $5 classes, $40 feis, and $75 hotel stays are long gone, so parents have to make decisions based on finances.

[> [> [> Subject: Lol yup - When we started in 1994 it was a $5 a class fee, paid in cash on the day. Also remember bidding on Priceline and getting hotel rooms near venues for $50. Great! Now I feel really old ;-D
