Pat Murphy’s definitive reference books for Irish set dancing

Featuring instructions for over 230 dances, the history of set dancing and its revival, explanations of steps, definitions, and more

Toss the Feathers was Pat’s first book originally published in 1995, now reprinted in a new and updated edition with 64 classic sets including the Plain, Sliabh Luachra, Caledonian, West Kerry and Connemara, plus descriptions of the steps and a detailed history of set dancing.

The Flowing Tide, the second volume, documents 57 newly revived sets, among them the Donegal, East Galway (2 versions), Williamstown, Mealagh Valley, Glencree and Hurry the Jug. The original edition from 2000 is hard to find, and it is now available in a new version.

Apples in Winter was published by Pat himself in 2009 with instructions for 47 sets, 32 two-hand dances and 11 céilí dances. Instructions for popular favourites such as the Ballyduff, Kilfenora Plain, Boyne, Claddagh, Moycullen and Sliabh Fraoch can be found inside.

Tabhair dom do Lámh (Give Me Your Hand) is the latest volume in the series, with 52 recently revived and newly composed sets like the Ballyfin, Ballykeale, Camp, Corballa, Merchant, Moate, Rinkinstown and Templebeg, plus a selection of two-hand and céilí dances.

All books are available directly from w Pat Murphy (tap name for contact info, tap icon for Pat’s full workshop schedule).

Introducing ads on Sets.ie

Include a colourful ad for your event, product or business on Sets.ie at reasonable prices.

Ads appear while browsing the listings. They show up in a random order, one or more in a row, depending on the width of the screen or browser window.

A reader will see more ads as they scroll through the listings, or by tapping the little arrow to the right. Ads alternate with photos, which operate similarly.

After all current ads have been seen, they show up again in a new random order for as long as the reader is browsing Sets.ie.

Ads are 600 by 500 pixels in size and can combine images and text.

They can be scheduled to start and stop on any two dates, and when one event has passed they can automatically update to show the next one, or even several.

Tapping on an ad can send a reader to a larger version with more info, or to a website.

The introductory cost is just €10 for two weeks, €20 for one month or €100 for six months—advance payment only. For more info, please contact Bill Lynch (tap name for contact info).
