Reviews and Contest Winners
Thanks again to all who entered our
Celtic Woman Ticket Contest.
We had a great response and your interest in
Irish E-Missives and our contests are appreciated.
We will be doing a complete review and feature of
the Celtic Woman concerts and tour in our next
print edition of the Irish News & Entertainment.
In the meantime; here is an excerpt from the
comments that we received from one of the
Celtic Woman Ticket Contest Winners.
"The show was fantastic. It is full of energy and
they appear to make it all look so easy. The singers
are fabulous and the musicians, especially the
drummers are amazing. The young lady with the
fiddle is like a little sprite running all over and
performing while on the move. It is one of most feel
good concerts I have been at in a long time!
I absolutely thoroughly enjoyed it."
Thanks to the phenomena of VIRAL MARKETING,
the Irish E-Missives have picked up a following and
readership throughout the United States.
The Celtic Woman US Tour continues through Fall
with the final performance on September 12 in
Morrison, Colorado at the Red
We can highly recommend this show; so if you are
interested; here is a link to the Celtic Woman
website with the tour schedule.

Wells Of LifeOur great friend, Nick Jordan told us about
Wells of Life late last year.
Jordan is the co-founder of this group and he has dedicated a lot of energy, money and time to
obtaining clean water for some wonderful people,
most of them children, who need our help.
We are now back on track to do
our best to help this fine organization drill
an IRISH E-MISSIVE READERS Well in Africa.
Please help if you can.
We mentioned this project a few
months ago for the first time. The dreadful
earthquakes in Haiti and Chile
distracted us and our readers but now we really
need your donations, moral support and word of
mouth to help make this happen.
Call our publisher Jim McDonough
785 341-6923 or
Luanne 949 885-7141 at
Nick Jordan's office to get involved.
