Photos from the Dan Furey Weekend, Labasheeda, Co Clare, September 1998

The traditional set dance workshop with Celine Tubridy. Michael Tubridy and 'Paddy' and 'Bridget' are playing the music.

John Fennell teaches footwork to a scrum of gents at the workshop in Labahseeda. John told us what his own dance teacher once said about the learning abilities of men and women - women can learn a step in three minutes, but it takes men three hours to learn the same step. However, women forget the step after three weeks while men remember it after three years. Note: these comments do not necessarily represent the views of Set Dancing News.

Friends and relatives of Dan Furey dance a few steps in his house. Michael Tubridy accompanies them on flute.

A very good night with the Abbey Ceili Band.

Jackie Daly came to London in September 1998, along with Maura O'Keeffe, Cath Taylor and Mick Mulkerrin, for a weekend at St Cyprian's Club in Brockley. On Sunday afternoon Jackie played for a few of Mick's sean nós steps. Mick was so pleased when he finished that he bowed down before Jackie.
