Have I missed something????

Postby Sid_Sidow » 23 Jun 2019, 02:17

I had seen several messages up to the Festival in Ballyshannon......

But I do not think I have seen any posts of comments/photos from the 2019 shows?
:o :o
Thanks!! ss

I think the posts for this year"s Ballyshannon festival are in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6132

I was unable to go this year, but most of the photos and uploads from the event are being posted to Face book it seems. The ease of use and prevalence of Facebook has made this forum seem redundant to many. The problems with Facebook are many, but IMO the most ominous is that Facebook is owned and managed by corporate interests that are and have been doing some very ominous things. Internationally, many governments are now seeking to regulate it, and there are security and privacy issues, but it is very easy and convenient to post to.

This forum is maintained and sponsored by Rory's family, and I hope they will always continue to run it, especially with Facebook being on shaky ground, but it does need some tweaking and updating, and the tech side will be working on it.

In the interim, please continue to watch this space, and post your thoughts, experiences and Rory observations. :)

I fully agree, but I fear information traffic has been slowing down (I guess like me!!)
Thanks!! ss

Yes vasdis, another thing I have seen very few posts. I'm still working through all the cuts (not enough time to listen straight through), but enjoying every moment I can.

One thing that I noticed - the photos on the packaging.
They all look so bright and fresh! With the same shirt on all of them, it must have been some photo shoot for ???? Any background on this??

The ones behind the CDs with the quizzical, funny looks are great!!! :D
Thanks!! ss

Lately it appears to me there has been very little information on the website.
Not sure where anyone/everyone has gone?

As a Rory lifer, I have depended on this site for good, timely information.
I'm looking forward to Ballyshannon 2020, but feel lost without other followers updating me here.

Please, all - pitch in, don't go away......

Thanks!! - steve, Omaha
Thanks!! ss
