An Ceili Mor – Part 1

The Ceile Mor was held in Cork City last Saturday in an attempt to break the world record for the largest Irish dancing event ever! The organisers hoped to get over 10,000 partipants, but as it was, they managed 8,371 which was enough to beat the previous record held by the town of Dublin in the USA! Here’s a few pictures from the day. Ryan has plenty more shots too!

[…] The Ceili Mor on St. Patrick’s Street, Cork, last weekend. Last year the Ceili Mor attracted 8,371 people who broke the world record for the largest Irish dancing event! This year was a more modest event but still the people showed up and joined in, slowly at first, but there was a decent crowd out enjoying themselves later! Photos from last year: part 1 and part 2.
