That big Irish cultural extravaganza known as Irish Fest takes over Milwaukee next week, and Corey and I will set up our own little Irish Fireside at the Moore Street Market in the Cultural Village.
If you’re attending, make sure to stop by and say hi. We’d LOVE to meet you, talk about Ireland, and have some great craic. We’ll also have a display of Liam’s jewelry that is crafted from shards of broken dishes on hand. A large number of his pieces are recovered in Ireland including Irish Belleek, Nicholas Mosse Pottery, Kilkenny Pottery, Arklow China and more.
The Cultural Village is on the south end of the festival grounds and tends to be slightly calmer and cooler (thanks Lake Michigan) than the rest of the park. We’ll be there Friday, Saturday, Sunday from opening until sundown, so unless we’re on a break, you should have no trouble finding us… just look for the broken dishes
