Show Notes

This clip was filmed at Milwaukee Irish Fest where each year Ireland’s Oireachtas winners perform in the Gaeltacht Tent. You can always count on Oireachtas na Gaeilge to put on a great show.

It’s purely coincidence that they are dancing to the same tune we posted from last year’s festival.
