As a 10-year-old, Mary Robbins was a champion Irish step-dancer. The traditional dance nudged her closer to her heritage, and her family made several trips to Ireland, where youngsters "take dancing the way we take PE," she says. As a wife and mother, the one-time top competitor had been relegated to performances in the kitchen of her La Canada home, with an audience of two wide-eyed children named James and Katie Liz.

An enterprising Irish Southern Californian has hauled a piece of the Blarney Stone to Los Angeles to exhibit at the Irish Fair and Music Festival next weekend.

Dennis Doyle vividly remembers the Sunday morning 15 years ago when a visiting Irish priest conducted Mass in Gaelic. Doyle, a third-generation Irishman, had never heard the ancient language of his ancestors. "Something inside me stirred," said Doyle, an English teacher at Glendale Community College, and church pianist. "I woke up. I wanted to learn about my culture, my history. I began studying the harp. It's the national instrument of Ireland."

Irish harpist Dennis Doyle knows that, in the record industry, it's not so much how you play your music but whether you have a pretty album cover. "You should see my latest album," Doyle said with a laugh. "I'm sitting with my harp on a lonely hillside as the sun is about to set, so I appear as a silhouette. And right at the crook of harp is the sun." He said his music "sells well at New Age crystal shops."
