WATCH: This flash mob of Irish dancers will have you dancing a jig all day


Oh, believe. This will shake off the cobwebs on this fine weekend.

Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2017 is taking place in Ennis again this year and to be honest, it’s not only the most important event in the traditional music calendar but one of the best.

Months of hard work and preparation all boil down to this event as fellow musicians, singers and dancers look to achieve the recognition of being crowned All-Ireland champion.

For those who can’t play, it’s about welcoming others to Ennis for a unique event that offers a wide range of activities to be enjoyed by all.

The Fleadh builds on the success of its predecessors, adding the uniqueness of its own place and traditions to the experience gained by hard-working Fleadh Committees down through the years and each host town seeks to emulate the achievements of other towns that have earned Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann the reputation that it has today.

Last year’s event drew 400,000 people to the county but the committee has made a bold statement this year that the Fleadh down in Ennis 2017 is going to be the best Fleadh ever.

To welcome the hundreds of thousands of people to Ennis, Clare FM in association with Traceys West County Hotel in Ennis and John Fennell’s School of Set Dance decided to have a flash mob at Shannon airport.

It starts off with about 15 people, nothing too hectic before it breaks out into an almighty session and before you know it, the place is covered with yellow and blue.

Have a look for yourself…
