Irish dancing across the world – video is a YouTube hit
Three Irishmen have become a YouTube sensation after publishing a video of themselves Irish dancing at some of the most iconic landmarks in the world.
The guys spent a year travelling the world and visited 23 countries in all. On their website they say they were armed with a ‘round the world ticket, a limited budget and a dodgy all weather camera.’
They used their camera to make videos of them taking Irish dancing across the world. They start off at the Guinness brewery in Dublin and visit Chichen Itza in Mexico, Machu Picchu in Peru, The Amazon in Bolivia, Sydney Opera House in Austrailia, Bali in Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and several other landmarks before stopping off at Big Ben in England on their way home.
The fantastic video was only uploaded yesterday and has already had over 90,000 views
They also kept a blog called (‘the wIRLd’) of their travels and went around schools, universities, businesses and homes with the aim of promoting Ireland and ‘Irishness’.
