Some Irish Dancing Just in Time for Saint Paddy’s Day

There’s just something about Irish music that gets the toes tapping. That’s why we’ve been saving this clip of Brian Ó Cuinneagáin displaying his sean-nós dancing skills.

We’ve got details about the clip at…Episode #39 – www.irishfireside.com/39oireachtas.htm

    I can see the connection. Sean-Nós dates back before the type of dance most people are familiar with…like the Riverdance-style of step dancing.

    Have a listen to our interview with Emer de Barra and she talks a bit about the more free-form dancing…and how the whole body dances in sean-nós. You can check it out at:
