Dan leaves a legacy that lives within all of those who he uched and inspired. No sense may be created from a decent unexpected loss acquaintance, notably during a time we expected to celebrate the festival together. Dan was more than our Artistic Director, he was a highly dear buddie and valued mentor to everyone on our whole team offering his guidance, thoughts, encouragement and laughter. Simply think for a moment. Sympathy outpouring for his passing with endless hugs and tears was overwhelming and still continues. That’s right! Dan Ireland left us so. Besides, there was lots of laughter., impact of Dan’s passing was made even more poignant by being surrounded with people who have come to understand and love him.
