A video from 2014 of a group of dancers performing in a church has re-emerged and is going viral – for all the right reasons.
The performance took place at the church of St. Mollerans, CarrickBeg, Co. Waterford.
The church was packed, and the people were full of cheer as the dancers had them howling with laughter during the performance.
The dancers came from behind the alter one at a time and certainly gave it all they had, with energetic moves that often included running down the aisle into the audience.
Towards the end, the dancers all come on the stage together and produced a fittingly chaotic finale.
The performers were a group of Waterford men and women who are regular fundraisers for both local and national causes.
In the past they have raised money for charities and organisations as diverse as Carrick-on-Suir River Rescue, Niall Mellon, Cystic Fibrosis, St. Mollerans hurling club.
For this performance they were raising funds to put a new roof on the church.
The video was filmed by Ruthie Ragget who wrote on Facebook: “Can’t believe I’ve kept this absolute gem of a video hidden from facebook for so long! Fundraiser for the church roof, April 2014. If you want a real good belly laugh, give this a watch.”

Why do Irish dancers always keep their hands by their side? Well, could that just be a myth?
