Irish dance group and TikTok sensations Cairde to perform on US television on St Patrick's Day
If exposure on TV wasn't enough, the performance will also be beamed into Times Square.
Irish dance group Cairde will be performing on popular US show Good Morning America to mark St Patrick's Day this week.
It comes after the group made a big splash on TikTok by posting Irish dance videos set to popular music.
Made up of very experienced dancers from across Ireland, Cairde have garnered nearly 2 million followers on TikTok, while their videos have received nearly 25 million likes.
Now, the group has announced it will perform a dance routine live from the Cliffs of Moher in Clare on Wednesday, which will be beamed onto Good Morning America.
It will also be broadcast live on the monitors in the iconic Times Square in New York.
The Irish Embassy in the US welcomed the news and wrote on Twitter: "Cairde at the Cliffs... That will be a genuinely good #StPatricksDay morning across America."
Cairde at the Cliffs... That will be a genuinely good #StPatricksDay morning across America. And a nice way to start the day on which we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Friends of Ireland Caucus. https://t.co/0FFoCFH0iV
