Craicin’ Good Fun by Kimberly O’Neill
Stepping into a pub on our nightly adventures,
wall to wall conversations and World Cup on the screen.
A young gent tells his tales of music, song and dance,
craic’ everywhere to be seen.
Guinness and hard cider flow in harmony with the music,
feet tapping, loud laughing from locals and their stories.
A brilliant reel on the fiddle plays in this busy corner pub…
You can feel it in the walls, the history of a town and its’ glories.
A craic: the combination of gossip, information, artistic performance and,
of course, booze that go to make a good night out.

This shot was taken quite a few years ago, but it immediately came to mind when I saw the theme. This was taken at Cabra Castle in Ireland when our daughter’s Irish dance school toured and danced in Ireland.

He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven
– William Butler Yeats
Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Last summer while touring through Ireland, we stopped at the Waterford Crystal showroom. A great place to pick up a special gift, but also an incredible display of their own artistry in crystal. This was a section of a bodhrán drum with celtic designs.
Below are some other examples of their intricate workmanship.
