Inis Meáin Step © Rónán Regan
Rónán composed this step to pay tribute to a lighter, flowing style of sean-nós dance, which many of the older gneration favoured to give expression and joy to our wonderful music. Dancer, Poet, farmer and fisherman, Dara Béag Ó Fáthartaigh, from Inis Meáin (RIP 2012) along with dancer, Irish teacher, librarian and radio presenter Maureen Mhéanaigh were the two graceful dancers who inspired this step. It was composed in the summer of 2002 while living, working and playing music and dancing on Inis Meáin.
