Irish Dancing In North America

Read Dr John Cullinane's historical account of Irish Dancing in North America

£11.99

Product description

Dr. John Cullinane takes his reader through a fascinating account of Irish dancing in America. The book first published in 1997 and later reprinted in 2001.

The Irish have played a major role in the colonization of North America and it is small wonder that the early Irish settlers contributed enormously to the folk music of America. As early as 1789 John Durang, a dance master in Philadelphia was recorded as having danced reels, jigs and hornpipes. Now the US is home to some of the best dancers and largest feisanna in the world, often setting the latest Irish dance trends for other countries to follow.

How To Return An Item (UK Customers)

We no longer process exchanges, so please return any incorrect sizes for a refund and order the new size online.

When returning an item, please include the delivery note sent with the order (we also send a copy via email if you have misplaced it) and send your return to:

Antonio Pacelli
14 Hallmark Trading Estate
Fourth Way
Wembley 
HA9 0LB
United Kingdom

We are happy to refund any purchase within 30 days as long as the item has not been worn or soiled (please note that this excludes show shoes and any products made to your bespoke requirements - in these instances we strongly recommend that you are confident about the sizing before ordering as they are non refundable). 

Please note that our wigs, earrings and leotards are also not returnable for hygiene reasons. Please double check the product page of the item you are returning if you are unsure it is eligible for return.

We suggest sending the parcel on a tracked service so you have a tracking number and proof of posting. We cannot accept responsibility for any items lost in transit. You will have to contact the courier company you used to claim for a lost parcel.

We do extend our returns period over the Christmas period to cover early purchases which then need to be returned.

The customer is responsible for the cost of return unless the item was sent out incorrectly or is faulty.

How To Return An Item (Non-UK Customers)

International customers can follow the instructions above, but you will also need to write on the outside of the box/bag and customs slip 'Returning to Manufacturer' to avoid delays and charges in customs. Any charges arising from customs documentation not being completed correctly will be deducted from the refund amount.

The customer is responsible for the cost of return unless the item was sent out incorrectly or is faulty.

We DO NOT accept deliveries from FEDEX due to the high admin charges involved. If you have to send via FEDEX then you will be responsible for the import charges and please note that the processing of your return will take 3 - 4 weeks longer than normal as we will have to wait until FEDEX confirm the import charges first before we can process your return.

Incorrect Or Faulty Items

Mistakes happen from time to time, so if have received an incorrect or faulty item, then please email us at sales@antoniopacelli.com. If the item is faulty then please include photographs of the fault so we can resolve the problem for you as quickly as possible. We will advise you of the next steps once we receive your email.

When returning incorrect or faulty items please note we will only refund return postage up to the value of the original postage paid for the order. Please, therefore, do not return items using a postage service such as an express courier service which costs more than the original outbound postage from us.

We do recommend that you send any return on a tracked delivery service as we are unable to exchange or refund until it is received by our returns department.

If the original item was sent out incorrectly or is faulty then the replacement item will be sent out postage free and the cost of returning it to us refunded to your card.
