Brendan Sands:

Born ninth in a family of twelve children in Newry, Northern Ireland, in 1957, Brendan is familiar with the struggle for one voice to be heard in the midst of many. No stranger to tragedy and troubles over the years, the enduring values of love, respect, and acceptance, in home and heart, continue to enhance his life, and the lives of all he comes in contact with. Now a proud grandfather, (and formerly a construction worker), and still a keen cyclist, skier, traveller, and adventurer, Brendan is unstoppable in living and sharing his Get Up and Go philosophy. “Everything is possible if you want it badly enough, just don’t let yourself get stopped by your own thinking”.
Eileen Forrestal:

 Recently retired from thirty-two years as a Medical Doctor, working in the front line of acute hospital medicine, Eileen is now working full time with Get Up and Go. Still a keen advocate of ongoing personal growth and development as an access to emotional well being and physical health, she encourages everyone to live life with ease. Her involvement with the Get Up and Go Diary supports her core beliefs: ‘Reading is to the mind, as eating is to the body; like the body, if the mind is to be healthy, we must be careful what we nourish it with’. A healthy mind in  a healthy body is truly the recipe for a wealthy life.”

 

It's easy to half the potato where there is love.

Narrowback Films

Arlington, Mass.

 

Kevin Ferguson, CEO of News & Analysis Inc., founded Narrowback Films in 2010 after working 30 years as a print journalist. His articles and photographs have appeared in The New York Times, Businessweek, Forbes, and other nationally known publications. His lifelong connection to the Irish Catskills impelled him to document its music and culture in 'Dancing at the Crossroads,' his first documentary film.​​

To make 'Dancing at the Crossroads,' Kevin called upon the expertise of Emmy-award filmmaker Michael Rossi (cinematographer); Sabrina Zanella-Foresi (editor, co-producer), a veteran of PBS productions; Peabody Award winner P.H. O'Brien (cinematographer); Doug Gordon (cinematographer), a film director, cinematographer and Boston University adjunct professor of film production; Heather Merrill (associate producer, seasoned PBS researcher); and James Rutenbeck (consultant), whose editing credits include over fifty films for PBS, BBC, Channel Four (UK), Discovery Channel and Showtime. To read more about them, wwwnarrowbackfilms.com

The biggest thanks of all go to the Irish musicians, resort owners and guests, who've opened their hearts and their personal archives. Their treasures have been extraordinary: rare photographs, home movies from the 1930s to the 1960s, private audio recordings, and, of course, their time, honesty, and memories. ​​

We have organized music in the  local pubs for our tour groups. These sessions are very welcoming to anyone who would like to sing a song, or dance, or indeed, join with an instrument. 

You will hear, for free, some of the finest musicians in the country.  These musicians have travelled the world with their music, but there's nothing like playing in the local pub with their friends.

We will bring you to all the stunning areas only the locals know.

You will see lakes, mountains, sea shores, forests, holy places, and much more. You will meet the locals who might just tell you some stories about where you are.

Relax and take in the fresh air. Go for a walk, take pictures and soak it all up.

On our travels we will see 11th and 12th century ruins of Castles, Abbeys, underground passage tombs, outdoor altars and famine grave sites.

You will go back in time listening to the history of these places. 

We will also be bringing you to restored castles and modern gravesites. "Oh but why are they bringing me to a gravesite" I can hear you say. Just wait and come with us, you will be amazed at what you see.
