Irish Dancers off to Scotland

Irish Dancers off to Scotland

Christchurch is rocking to the sound of an Irish jig right now. These four Irish dancers are raising funds to travel to the 2010 World Irish Dancing championships in Glasgow. Check out the video below.

Quite a crowd is gathering so hopefully they make some decent money. Every few minutes the horse-drawn tram rumbles past to give the onlookers something extra to take photos of. Those onlookers that don’t fall beneath the 12 hooves of the giant horses.

One question though: Why are the World Irish Dancing Championships held in Glasgow? I mean … I’m no Geography teacher but I’m pretty sure Glasgow is in Scotland.
