Our first Céilí

Tonight Molly, Colleen, Tara, Melissa and I joined our dance teacher Mary Beth at O'Shea's Pub in the city center for some Irish set dancing. It was so much fun and it was a great way to spend our second to last night in Dublin. Tomorrow night might be full of packing and cleaning, so we were all glad to get out tonight to give the city a proper send off.

We all knew the Connemara set, but Colleen got pulled into an earlier dance because they needed one more person. She went in completely blind, but she did great!

Then our song came on, so we all joined in the sets. Colleen was my man and we did wonderfully. It was so much fun! Plus, it just felt so authentic and traditional, like it was natural to be in a pub spinning around in a circle to the sounds of an accordion. That's probably because in Ireland, it pretty much is.
