Irish Festival part 1



It ended up being just Bebo and I, but we had fun. We ate, walked, shopped (I spent too much), and watched a group called The Makem Brothers with Mickey and Liam Spain (twice). Loved them! We ended up buying a CD a piece. The Makem Brothers (Rory, Shane and Conor)are the sons of Irish folk singer Tommy Makem.
There were a lot of dogs there, mainly big Irish Wolfhounds and (I'm going to spell this wrong) Pyrennes. But then I saw this gorgeous, gentle giant - a Newfoundland.

That's a big puppy. I remembet the Wolfhounds, wirey hair, HUGE, and sweet.
Sounds like a good time was had, now REST!

Michele said...

Cool! I've never been to an Irish festival before.
It looks and sounds like it was a lot of fun. You deserve to have some fun, Bailey, after what you've been dealing with the past month.

Congrats!
Now it's Monday, are you resting?
;-)

Woke up a bit clogged up this morning, so yes, I'm resting.

What about beer? There was no mention of beer. Did I miss the mention of beer?

Bailey Stewart said...

Rene - there was plenty of Guinness around, but because of meds, I couldn't have any. Bebo normally does, but she didn't for some reason. Hmmmmm Anyway, there was some other Irish beer there that Bebo knows the name of, but I don't remember.

I'm glad you had a good time! Can't say as Great Pyrennes and Newfies are very Irish, though. *g*

Jill said...

Ah, love the dog!

Melissa said...

Sounds like a lot of fun, Bailey! I thought about you this weekend while watching Irish dance:)

Melissa Marsh said...

So glad you had fun!

Susan said...

Great pics! It's great to hear you had such a good time! To bad about the no Guinness thou. :( Rest up, we don't want any setbacks with your health.

Maybe next year you should take your cats. LOL

Hey Bailey!
There was Guinness. *sigh*
That would have been worth the price of admission, right there!
Get you some rest....

Newfoundlands and Pyrenees. My two favorite breeds. :) Besides the Schnoodle, of course (Diggy dog made me write that! ;)

Toni Anderson said...

I love Newfoundlands and Irish wolfhounds. Looks like you had a lovely time :)

Devon Ellington said...

Newfies are great! My friends in Boothbay Harbor have one. He does water rescue all the time -- bathing suits and flipflops and old tires . . .

The festival sounds like great fun!
