Welcome to Portland's October 21st 2005 Irish Ceili

 On Thursday I attended the dvd kickoff for Portland's own, Maldon Meehan,  and Ronan Regan of 
Galway Ireland inside the Alberta St Tavern ( hi Mikey )   Best wishes on their new Sean-nos dvd. 

Friday I did my best to NOT break the ice at the Lloyd Center - what a  surprise to find that venue. 

Limbs still in working order, I dropped in at the Friday nite ceili.
Sam Keator was the first caller of the evening, and Seattle's' Finn McGinty, Dale Russ and
 Tom Creegan provided the musical inspiration for the dancers.
Hope you enjoy this peek at the event .
