Postcards left at Leo's

Postby Balor » Sun Jun 26, 2011 8:09 am

I'm back from Ireland. While there I left a couple of postcards for Moya at Leo's. I hope she received them? Anyway, she'd been to Leo's to release her new CD, Voices & Harps the previous Saturday, June 11, and was coming back to Leo's on Friday, June 17. Bad timing for me, as usual. I was happy to purchase the CD at Leo's though!

I'm sure the postcards will find their way to Moya, Balor. :wink:

That was unfortunate timing, by the sound of things, but if it's any consolation, a similar thing happened to me last year. Before I went up to Gweedore, I saw Moya guest with Dervish at the NCH in Dublin. We were chatting afterwards, and it turned out that she and Tim had only just got back - so had I gone to Gweedore first.... :roll: Well, you can work out the rest! :P

Enjoy Voices & Harps!

Your postcards are in good hands in Leo's,Balor :D

Back in 1998 I decided to go to Donegal only to end up in Leo's a week before the 30th anniversary of the pub.I had to go back home before the fun started,but thankfully I heard about the 40th anniversary in time and witnessed a great weekend. :)

Could you say its a bad timing for me too the fact that i've never been to Gweedore ? or Leo's ?

Im trying to find a spot, a tour worth the travelling, more than one gig. A tour in Ireland just like the one in Holland or Germany would be fine for me.

I dont see that coming in the near future...do you ?

Anyway, here i am again, wondering if i should go to Germany in December (there is a few days vacant early in december for dates in Poland i presume) even i f have 5 front row seata locked for the next Holland tour in April 2012.

Its hard to skip a tour...very hard :cry:

At least ill be in Dublin OHIO instead of Ireland this coming august for another great Irish festival.

:) You could also go without concerts to go to :) We all have to miss concerts we'd like to be at Pierre, don't worry (after all, you've don't pretty well :lol:)

G's right, Pierre. Even if there aren't any concerts, Ireland is an amazing place to visit (as proven by the sheer number of times this particular forummer keeps going there!:oops:). I really wouldn't restrict yourself to a "no gig, no trip" rule! :wink:

Just as one example, I went up to Gweedore last year, and spend a very pleasant, quiet evening in Leo's, when there was literally just me and half a dozen or so locals, who were chatting away happily with this strange Brit who'd turned up! Experience tells me that people are like that in a lot of places throughout Ireland.

I agree, it's nice to see Moya in concert, but from what I've seen, in Ireland she tends to do concerts "here and there", rather than touring. So, unfortunately, I suspect what you're hoping for is unlikely to happen - for the foreseeable future, anyway. That said, even if you only got to see one concert somewhere, there's plenty to see to make the long haul from Canada worthwhile.

I have to agree with Dave,there's so much to see and do in Ireland,one could spend months here and would still have a huge ' to do ' list.It's not hard to come across a pub with live music and/or have some fun with the locals,even in the smallest of places. :D

Dave and Grania you are absolutely right :D

BUT

For me north americaner ! the cost to cross the big lake is a lot more than for you both if you feel like going to Leo's

..a bus ride or a short plane trip ! :wink:

So, for me i need to spend my money wisely. When i decide to go to Europe its a 2500 can dollars investment....and i have done it 4 times in the last 18 months.

You figure the total :oops:

SO

I need a Moya fix to make it worh while going to Europe.

UNLESS

Someone like you Grania or Dave would organize a big Moya fans gathering at Leo's than i will certainly consider going even if there is no gig.

It wouldbe such an honor to shake your hand Dave...and others. :lol:

one more thing

Montreal is such a beautiful place in the summer, to me its hard to move away during the hot months. October to april are my favorites months to travel.

BUT

Yes i seriously consider going to Ireland. I have some facebook friends overthere that i would love to meet.

In a near future thats for sure.
