Very early start to go to see Bunratty Castle and heritage park. After a very informative tour around the castle they had some time to visit the heritage park. An exhibition of houses from the 19th century which gave a very good impression of what life was like back in the days of the Irish famine in 1847, a time when around 6 million people left the country. Ireland hasn't really recovered from that still until today. Before the famine there were 11 million inhabitants and today there are 4,8 million. After lunch they went on to Ballybunion, a coastal town, where they performed at the Tintean Theatre. Before the performance the dancers had a chance to learn Irish dancing from two professional dancers, Chris McSorley and Kelly Stephens. The performance was a great success, the dancers received many compliments from Chris and Kelly. Well done Tutterow Dancers!! Thank you Miss Debbie and Miss Brittney!!
