Gweedore Gathering: 2006?

Postby Angoid » Wed Sep 14, 2005 10:27 pm

Following the success of the Gweedore Gathering 2005, I was wondering what the interest would be in having a similar meet-up at about the same time in 2006 :)

At this stage of the game, I'm not proposing we suggest dates and other specifics, but what would the level of interest be?

On the agenda would be visiting some of the places Moya refers to in some of her songs plus other places of beauty, and just generally getting together and having a blast ...

Hey Angus!

I voted "Absolutely" since I totally agree with Mise in thinking that this is a marvelous idea :D
Ever since '96 I am a great fan of Iona, their music celebrates the history of Celtic Christianity and the nature of Ireland and Schotland. The discovery of Moya's and Clannad's music in '98 obviously only increased my interest in the heritage, culture and nature of that part of the world.
I am extremely looking forward to visiting Ireland and I intended to go this summer but my "moneysituation" kindly requested me to wait another year :mrgreen:
Anyway, a visit to Leo's would obviously be the Highlight of my trip and it would be great to meet some fellowmusic fans there.....so, do count me in!

I know Tim mentioned to a few of us fans during the two visits (Gweedore Gathering & Earagail Arts Festival) that we should make it an annual event, and it's something I'd be interested in, maybe not every year, but at least a bi-annual event (or maybe me just attending the annual event every other year so I don't get sick).

But, yeah, I think it's a great idea, people who've been places can tell us where they went (Bridge of Tears, Dunlewey Church, Mount Earagail etc), how to get there, what else is there to see, where to stay etc. Building up from 2005 (and previous visits) to make next year a trip worth making.

Count me in as long as dates allow. (this year's dates were perfect, if you get my drift)

I'd certainly like to visit Gweedore again, its a beautiful area! I'm not so sure about being in a big group, not really my thing. I'd like to explore the place with a couple of close friends and maybe meet up for a night in Leo's or a stroll down the beach....

That sounds good to me.. I didnt like the way our time together was all so scheduled and we didnt get any free time worth talking about to go exploring by ourselves.. granted that was because I ws there for such a short time, but still, could I make that suggestion??

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Of course you can make that suggestion ness, it might sound silly but the most enjoyable bit of the holiday for me was wandering down Bunbeg beach, enjoying the tranquility of the place and looking for comfortable rocks to sleep on! :P

Well, I'm really intrested in it but I don't think my mum let me go :cry: Ehm, I'm sure about it. She didn't let me go to a concert what was in Budapest... and the reason is: You're too young. :( Okay, I agree with it, many bad things can happen with me and I'm not enough self-sufficing and spirited to it... :oops: But I would like to gooooooooo so much!!! :(

I'd have to agree that it shouldn't a big group thing, just a time (over a week or two) where you can go along, catch up with people, meet up, do things on your own, or with people if you want. Just a time when you're likely to see someone you know.

This year, as some of you know, I went along with a good friend, spent a bit of time with Jackie, Manuel and Mise, got to meet Nessieq, but still had bags of time exploring with my friend.

There are so many places that the experience would be spoilt if visiting in a big group (Bunbeg Beach, the huge lagoon and beach down by the pier past the Bloody Foreland, Dunlewey Church etc), but so many places where a group would enhance things, a good meal, an evening in a pub etc.

Couldn't agree more with you guys!
I'd suggest everybody is free to go their own way and have their own schedule. Besides that we could set a date to meet up in Leo's to enjoy each other's company and hopefully this time also Moya's company!
