After a recent feis, a friend of mine sent me a message on Facebook that kinda, sorta, really really irritated me. I like ‘smack-talk’ just as much as the next guy, but I think this goes beyond way good-hearted ribbing, especially from someone who teaches our children.

After the immense popularity of eat, pay, drive, and at the request of many (well 2) followers, I have created the non-dance sibling version of the idea. Did I get it right? ;) Eat, play, whine is a trademark of What The Feis and is subject to copyright laws.
A t-shirt idea, based on a book I never plan on writing, that I posted about on Facebook. Would you buy one? ;) Eat, pay, drive is a trademark of What The Feis and is subject to copyright laws.

My first ‘real’ post out on Antonio Pacelli on the subject of being an Irish dance parent is what I call ‘The Top 10 Responsibilities of Being an Irish Dance Parent’ which you can find in its entirety at https://www.antoniopacelli.com/community/article/the-top-10-responsibilities-of-being-an-irish-dance-parent. If you have a minute, give it a read. I would love to hear your thoughts!… Read more »
If your dancer is like mine, and you have been doing this for a while, there are some adjudicators they want at the table while they dance, and some, well, not so much. So when TGC (that is ‘the girl child’ for you new readers) saw the ‘cool judge’ sitting at the table to judge… Read more »
This F.E.I.S. (First Everyone Is Safe) Recommendations list is the consolidation of thoughts from a few other posts. If you are new, this is the third in a series of posts regarding feiseanna safety. You can see Part 1 and Part 2 to get caught up if you need to. Based on input from you,… Read more »
