Hello, Everyone! Kathy here.

Milwaukee Irish Fest is barely a week gone now, but I want to get things written down before they fade from my (ever-decreasing) memory.

What a time we had at 2009 Irish Fest! We saw and did so much; yet, there was so much more we wanted to do that we just couldn’t get to. We planned to do more interviews and watch more bands and talk to more people. The truth is that, just like when you’re driving yourself around Ireland, it takes longer to get from Point A to Point B than you think it should. This is not a bad thing! We lingered over a pint here and an exhibit there. We met up with some old friends and made some new ones.

We would certainly be remiss if we didn’t thank Corey and Liam from the Irish Fireside for showing us the ropes and acting as our tour guides for the weekend. And we can’t wait to go back in 2010! (more…)
