Inishturk island is in all the headlines this year, with unhappy US citizens, fearful of the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency, rushing to take the island’s residents up on their offer of a new place to call home in the now unlikely event of the GOP candidate coming out on top.
If the thought of living on a tranquil, idyllic isle off the coast of Co. Mayo wasn’t enough to lure you to Inishturk, however, this dance-off video is sure to show you exactly why we should all be making the nine-mile passage across the water.
Although originally filmed in 2012, a video of two Irish dancers battling it out in an incredible fashion has resurfaced and is making us extremely jealous of all the craic we could be having.
Now shared over 45,000 times, the video shows the two dancers in rip-roaring competition, showing off their signature moves in between their traditional steps. Shot in the Inishturk Island Community Center, it’s Irish dance at its best and the kind of once-in-a-lifetime session you can only dream of stumbling across one day.
