Ring of Kerry Dancers
Celebrate 20th Anniversary
In the early Spring of 1991 a small group of ceili
dancers gathered in a community hall in Gaithersburg
Maryland to discuss the possibility of forming a new
Irish dance group. Previously, the prospective
members had taken dancing lessons under the auspices
of the Gaithersburg Recreation Department and teacher,
Kathy Andes. The group had often been referred to as
the “Gaithersburg Group,” but within the class they
were jokingly known as Andes’ Dandies.
Continued on next page.
Don Kaliher, Editor
[email protected]
Things had changed, however, and it seemed like
time to form an
independent group. At
the meeting it was
decided that classes
would continue in a
MCPS classroom and
Jean Murphy would be
the teacher.
On Sunday, January 23rd, the GWCC monthly ceili
was held at Cherry Hill Park, with seven + sets of
enthusiastic dancers in attendance.
With about ten members, the classes began. Word
spread quickly and soon the group had 20, and then
30 members. A name for the group was chosen (The
Ring of Kerry Irish Dancers), the goals were set (have
fun, learn dances, preserve a cultural tradition), and a
leadership style chosen (consensus).
The workshop dance was the West Kerry Set, taught
by Don Kaliher. This set is a real workout, especially
the last figure with lots and lots of doubling! After a
few tries, everyone seemed to be getting it. The band
was the Bog Wanderers; the music was absolutely
terrific, and gave the dancers a good workout!
The rest is history. The group, now numbering
about 60, continues to hold classes in the
Gaithersburg area, perform in various venues, march
in local parades, host numerous holiday parties, travel
to Ireland, and
offer friendship to
all the members.
The first set of dances included the Clare Plain Set,
the Cashel Set, and the Four Hand Reel. The pot luck
tables once again showed off the culinary talents of our
dancers; every bowl and platter was emptied. The
second set of dances started with our workshop dance.
It was followed by the Ballyvourney Jig Set, and the
Corofin Plain Set (whew!). During the second break,
Bob Epstein won the 50/50 prize. We ended the
evening with the Boyne Set, continued with the Sweets
of May, a waltz, and ended with the Clare Lancers Set.
On May 20-22,
2011, the Ring of
Kerry Irish
Dancers will
celebrate their 20 years of wonderful
accomplishments at a unique location, Shrine Mont
near Orkney Springs, Virginia. Past and present
members of the Ring of Kerry Irish Dancers AND all
members of the Irish dance community are invited to
join in the celebration, The Odyssey Continues
…1991~2011.
Join us for one or two nights! The cost per adult,
per night is $100 (double occupancy). This includes
your room, all meals, happy hours, all activities
(except golf), set dance workshop with Marilyn
Moore, and Friday (CDs) and Saturday (Jesse Winch
et.al.) ceilis. Children are invited. For all details
contact Diane McLaughlin at [email protected]
or Marilyn O’Brien at [email protected]
(301-466-4100) or www.ringofkerrydancers.org. The
registration form and deposit are due March 15.

DANCE NOTES
~ Edie O’Donnell
Our next ceili is Sunday, February 27; don’t miss it!
Please note a scheduling change for March; the ceili
is scheduled for March 13th, to coincide with St.
Patrick’s Day. Additionally, GWCC members entertain
at a number of senior residences during the St. Patrick’s
“season.” See Edie O’Donnell or Dixie Baker if you’d
like to join us in this very rewarding outreach program.
~~ SET DANCE OF THE MONTH ~~
The dance for February is the Aherlow Set from
County Tipperary. This dance was taught by Pat
Murphy at the 2001 CCE North American Conference
in Toronto. The set consists of 6 polka figures and has
many similarities to the Clare Plain Set. Paul
O’Donnell will be teaching the Aherlow Set at the
February 27th Ceili. Dance notes are on pages 14 and
15 of this newsletter.

the better. But just when you think that might happen,
the fantasy comes to a crashing halt. However, in a
couple of ironic twists of fate, it almost seems that there
is some selkie magic at work after all.
BEV’S BEST BETS
~ Bev Ricks
Ondine: Not your grandfather’s selkie
When commercial fisherman Syracuse (Colin
Farrell) brings up a shivering woman in his net, the
circumstances of her being in the waters off the coast
of Ireland seem, well, fishy. She’s shy and doesn’t
want anyone to see her, so Syracuse takes her to live
in his dead mother’s cottage in nearby Cork. When
the woman goes out on his boat with Syracuse, the
amount and type of fish he hauls in are so astonishing
that the patrolmen from the Fishery Board check out
his catch to make sure it’s legal. Soon his bright but
wheelchair bound 10 year old daughter Annie (Alison
Barry) decides Ondine (Alicja Bachleda) is a selkie.
What else can explain her father’s good luck and his
seeming happiness since Ondine appeared in his life?
Between trips to the dialysis unit Annie goes to the
local library to check out some material on selkies.
Even her dad seems convinced Ondine, whose name
means “up from the water,” might be one of these
mythical creatures. Ondine innocently goes along
with this, burying a pile of seaweed, with Annie’s
help, that the child thinks is Ondine’s seal coat.
Meanwhile Syracuse confides in the local priest
(Stephen Rea), that he’s found this woman, “sinned”
with her, and fears their happiness will be short lived,
because that’s the way his life has always been.
However, he won’t be doing any penance or coming
to mass, but the priest takes that in stride. Rea’s
character provides some sage advice and comic relief.
The priest, who has no name, tells Syracuse “misery's
easy; it's happiness you have to work at.” Father also
acts as Syracuse’s individualized AA meeting,
clapping as instructed when Syracuse begins his
confession by giving his first name and the amount of
time he’s been sober.
Annie’s belief that Ondine is a selkie provides her
with some much needed joy while she awaits a
kidney transplant. She lives with her often drunk
mum Maura (Dervla Kirwan, Assumpta from
Ballykissangel) and Mum’s boyfriend Alex (Tony
Curran). Sometimes the kids at school tease her
because of her special needs. So you want the selkie
to change the lives of Syracuse and his little girl for
In Step
While the film’s only sex scene, described as a “racy
romp” was cut, Polish actress Bachleda, Farrell’s real
life girlfriend whom he met on the set and with whom
he now has a son, shows enough flesh in her
provocative costumes that Ondine rated a PG 13.
Several scenes are shot from under water with the
camera angled up at the surface, which helps create the
sometimes surreal feel of the film, while the
accompanying instrumentals are almost sonar in tone.
Other music provided by Lisa Hannigan and Damien
Rice make the film worth watching just for the
soundtrack.
Producers Neil Jordan and James Flynn’s 2009 film
is listed as fantasy/drama, lasts 111 minutes and gets
three stars.

Nicola Joyce and Noelie McDonnell
Saturday, March 5, 2011, 8:00 pm
at The Lyceum in Old Town Alexandria
Nicola Joyce, lead singer with the Irish band
Grada, is working with songwriter Noelie McDonnell
on a project called PoetSong: the poetry of the great
Irish poets set to music. In February and March,
Nicola and Noelie will be bringing the project to the
U.S.
Nicola Joyce is orginially from a small town
called Lower Culleen, near Headford, Galway. As
vocalist and bodhran
player with the Irish
band Grada, she has
toured in 26 countries,
playing 150 shows a year
in venues from Dublin’s
National Concert Hall
and The Royal Glasgow Concert Hall to the Sydney
Opera House.
Grada's album Natural Angle was chosen by NPR
as one of the five best folk albums of 2010, alongside
Natalie Merchant, Patty Griffin, Ellis Paul and
Crooked Still.
Grada's sound is deeply rooted in the Irish
tradition, but also layered with fresh, jazzy tones and
strong rhythmic grooves. With Grada, Nicola has
worked with a wide range of traditional musicians
from Ireland and American, including banjoist Alison
Brown and Odessa Jorgensen of the bluegrass band
Barefoot, and, as producers, with Trever Hutchinson
of Lunasa and bluegrass master Tim O'Brien (whom
the band had met at the Tonder Festival in Denmark).
With a break in Grada's touring schedule, Nicola was
finally able to turn to work on the Poet Song project
In Step
Noelie Mc Donnell’s songwriting has
been recognized by both fans and fellow
musicians for its beautiful and simple
observations on everyday life. In 2008,
Noelie McDonnell won the hearts of
new fan's all over the nation with his
Irish chart topping single, "Nearly
Four," which also remained at No.1 in
the iTunes folk chart for 6 weeks
following its release in October. The album Beyond
hard places was hailed by New York Post "as a
startlingly good new Irish talent" and spent two months
in the iTunes Top 10 folk album chart.
A meeting with American folk legend Greg Brown
last summer kicked started a chain of events that led to
the making of Come Alive. Brown invited Noelie to
support him on his U.S. tour, which lead to Noelie
playing at the International folk conference in Memphis
and playing with the elite of Avant Guarde Americana,
including Anais Mitchell, Devon Sproule & Jess Klein.
Then on to Austin, Texas, where Noelie started work on
Come Alive at the stunning Aerie Studio. Noellie
finished the recording in Toronto, Canada at the end of
this summer.
Noelie’s live performances have earned critical
acclaim and won over fans. He has as shared the stage
with Greg Brown, Luka Bloom, John Martyn and Eddi
Reader.
