Irish dancers wow talent show judges
Fans of Irish dancing will love a routine performed on a talent show to the classic song Red Haired Mary.
They appeared on the Irish language TG4 show An Jig Gig and the judges and audience were blown away as the dancers strutted their stuff to the Dervish hit.
The group consisted of Ryan Owens, Jack Hughes, Liam Taylor, Aaron Dorey, Ceili Faughnan, Grainne Burke, Ellen Langton and Anna Crossley from Sean Nós ar an tSionann.
The routine saw the youngsters acting out the story of the song even down to one of the characters being kicked by a donkey.
Take a look at their performance in the video below.
