Cork trio perform best Irish dance video of the year
You have got to watch the latest Irish dancing video that is taking the internet by storm.
‘Freedom’ is a two minute film that showcases Irish dancing in all its glory. It sees Cork men Kieran Hardiman, Alan Kenefick and Ciaran Plummer performing their perfectly choreographed routine around the grounds of University College Cork.
The soundtrack adds real drama to the performance, as it features Charlie Chaplain’s inspiring speech from the famous 1940 film The Great Dictator. The music is equally dramatic, with Californian electronic synthpop band The Glitch Mob’s Mind of a Beast blasting out as the trio dance.
The video is professionally put together, with the sound, the scenes, and the dancing all skilfully selected to complement each other.
Kieran posted the ‘Freedom’ video on to his Facebook page a couple of days ago, and it has been shared thousands of times and viewed more than a quarter of a million times.
Kieran’s friends have been posting their congratulations and praise for the video.

Since the first ever performance of Riverdance in 1994, Irish dancing has grown in popularity around the world. In recent years, with the growth of the internet, and specifically video sharing site YouTube, we have seen countless Irish dancing videos uploaded and shared with the world.
Many performers have shown that Irish dancing is not just for Irish music, but also great when performed to modern pop songs and other genres of music.
However, we must say that this ‘Freedom’ video certainly stands out from the crowd for its professional production and dramatic soundtrack. A brilliantly different way to showcase Irish dancing to the world and one of the best Irish dance videos of the year so far.
