1985 I discovered Ireland. Right away, I fell in love with the country, Irish culture and music. With my family, I returned many times to County Clare, where my children did their first steps in the soft sand at the Atlantic coast. 1998 I got addicted to Set Dancing and the only cure was to attend as many Workshops, Ceilis and Summer Schools as possible. This has not changed until today. Over all those years, Pat Murphy has inspired my dancing more than anybody else, and I pass his experience on to my dancing friends with gratitude.
