You’re not supposed to laugh about the environment, are you? We did.
People from ages 8-75 got together at storyteller Liz Weir’s Ballyeamon Barn at the head of Glenariff. The craic started with the first cup of tea.
We also talked very seriously about the local-global problems we all face at present. And on the Saturday night, we sang, danced, told stories and poems at Liz’s regular ceili session.
Everybody conspired to help us: the BBC with a live piece on Your Place and Mine, Mother Earth with a big storm overnight, Jacky Ingram with her laughter workshop, Darren from the Ballymena Guardian taking our photo. Furthermore, there was a centrefold on Baglady in Sunday Life (our thanks to reporter Clare and photographer Liam).
A brilliant workshop, the first of many, we hope. The next is already planned for 29-30 November in Omagh. Details later.
