The idea came one late night in Drumshanbo and there and then, the first part was written on a scrap of paper. However, like a lot of good ideas that come late in the evening, by morning, inspiration had nearly vanished. We persisted and nearly two years later to coincide with the 10th annual set-dancing weekend in 2012 in Án Grianán it was completed.
Most sets are named after their place of origin and the Rinkinstown set is named after a local townland near Termonfeckin, Co Louth. The set was devised by Mairéad Devane, John & Sheila McEvoy and tested with the help of local set dancers. It is comprised of 4 Figures - 3 Reels, 1 Hornpipe. Various movements such as the ducks originated from noteworthy landmarks in the locality.
Launched in The Westcourt Hotel, Drogheda, Co Louth 23 August 2012.
