Young Irish ‘Bodhrán boys’ are an Internet hit

Three young lads have become an Internet sensation as a video of them playing the bodhrán and sean nós dancing has gone viral.

The video of the ‘Bodhrán Boys’ features the three lads – Ryan Owens, Aaron Dorey and Ryan Sheridan – sitting in the kitchen ready to put on a show.

They seem like everyday kids, but they showed that they all had plenty of musical talent as they put on their bodhrán show.

After introducing themselves, they begin playing on the famous Irish drum. They are all already very accomplished, especially for their tender years.

Bodhrán Boys - Young Irish musicians show off their bodhrán and dancing skills

As the video continues, they show they have another string to their bow as one by one they get up from their seat and perform a sean nós dance on a makeshift stage in the middle of the kitchen.

They are regulars at a dance club in Carrick on Shannon, Co. Leitrim and might just be ones to look out for in the future.

The video of the Bodhrán boys’ kitchen performance has gone viral, with tens of thousands of views on YouTube and Facebook.
