“Fast Dream us” into Place
People are taking centre stage in our project at the mo and in the human sphere fortuitous connections are fast dreaming us into place. Invitations and ideas for future adventures are issuing fast from potential hosts.
We undid our high Victorian collars just long enough to down our first pint/half pint of Guiness at Blake’s Hollow, an Irish music pub in Enniskillen. Here we were introduced to friends of Diane Henshaw (Fermanagh Arts Officer), who is a gem.
We sat with Catherine Ward, who leads walks for the Fermanagh Ramblers and Jim Ledwith, for whom “mumming” as a way of life. We will go with the mummers to Knockrinny summit on Saturday to celebrate midsummer (we may have to dress up in straw!). There is also an offer of a walk to Speaking Horse Hill….
And we plan to meet Patrick Murphy who makes straw suits for “ the straw men”.
Now we are off to the 50th Anniversary party at the local cave rescue hut on a mountainside and there is a new blog on the horizon. Later we have the fleadh (pronounced flah) at Beleek and a whole new network of contacts and intros might open up.
Will pubs be pivotal in our project?
