Irish Dance: The Festival Story
From the first Irish folk dancing festival in Larne in 1928, the festival tradition of Irish dancing has played a significant part in Ulster’s culture. This historical account takes the reader on a journey from courtly ballrooms and cottage firesides across a landscape of barn dances, harvest homes, fancy dance classes, feiseanna and festivals, narrating how Catholic and Protestant children held hands in town halls, parochial halls and Protestant halls even when bombs splintered communities and deepened mistrust.
The story begins in 2003 when Hannah learns that her father’s return from prison will collide with her French exchange. A tapestry of love and loss is woven through humour and heart-ache as we move from Belfast to Paimpol in Brittany on a powerful journey of shame and redemption.
