A group of Irish dancers from Argentina travelled to Ireland and performed at the Ennis Street Arts Festival.

The group are called Celtic Argentina and performed the dance to music from a band called Los Paddys De Las Pampas.

The groups were in Ennis to take part in the Fleadh Cheoil music festival, which is a huge annual celebration of Irish music, dance and culture. It includes competitions that are open to people from Ireland and other countries such as the UK, USA and Canada.
