On the 6th of October 2014 was the first dancing of the Kilfenora set in Croatia. It occurred in Pula and will be followed up this week by the Zagreb team. Kilfenora has one of the best set dancing venues in the world at Vaughens pub and I am very proud that we are dancing a set from a part of the world so deep and still active in set dancing tradition. No only that, but probably the worlds most famous ceili bands is from Kilfenora.
Finally in the picture are at least two legends of set dancing and battering steps – Paddy Neelan and Aidan Vaughen. Some of the Irish Maiden older generations have learned with these teachers on our trips to Ireland and I am proud to have learned under both of these great dancers.
