Of course we had to scour youTube for some videos to fit our theme! Here is a selection! Discover Ireland Long Version by Tourism Ireland…
Riverdance for some beautiful Irish dancing… AND a Facebook link HERE of a friend and her troupe as they warm up. Sadly the music playing is live and what they were practicing to was canned music we can’t hear but still… beautiful.
Our focus also fell on Irish instruments… the Bodhran…
The tin whistle…
and the Celtic Harp…
We only watched the first in the series but there are THREE videos on Hurling to watch by Cokane1888 on youTube.
