These were super wonderful years of great friendships, sharing it all with Chris, fancy dancing.   We took ten trips to the West of Ireland for even MORE dancing and playing.  I still leap to my feet when I hear reels and jigs.   One of the greatest festivals is the Willie Clancy Summer School.

For some of this time I was learning to play Irish dance music on the accordion.  I bought my accordion, WW II, vintage, from a dulse gatherer in the town of Quilty, County Clare.
