Dancing policeman joins in the fun at Fleadh Cheoil festival

Once an Irish party gets undwerway it can be almost impossible not to join in the fun.

That was the case recently in Droghedfa, as a local Garda got caught up in the excitement at the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil festival.

The policeman started dancing with one of the partygoers to the classic song Cecelia, performed by the Carolan Brothers.

He took off his hat and placed it on the head of his dance partner as the two strutted, jived and even twerked their way around the dancefloor, to the delight of the other revellers.

The comical moment was captured on video by Paul Mohan, who is a professional photographer and was there to broadcast the event.

He tweeted the video with the message: “Fair play to An Garda Siochana @GardaTraffic . Great craic and atmosphere at the @fleadhcheoil in Drogheda last night ! #Fleadh2018 #fleadhcheoil”
Fleadh Cheoil is a month long festival that celebrates Irish music, dance and culture.

There have been numerous concerts, trad sessions, Irish dance performances and acoustic sets taking place throughout August with some great talent on show.

It is great to see the infectious energy of these Irish performers spread into the community, and hat’s off (literally) to this fun-loving Gard for joining in the festivities.
