Three Scouts from Dublin, Ireland, gave an impromptu Irish jig dance lesson at the international exhibit yesterday. The three were visiting the jamboree for a couple of days as they travel across the United States.
While visiting the exhibit area, they were thrilled with the Scouts’ interest in Ireland. After a little prodding they agreed to give everyone a lesson in doing an Irish jig. Music was downloaded, and soon the tent floor was covered in beginning Irish dancers.
An enthusiastic Robert Naughton had the microphone. With the help of friends Fionn Peaslai’ and Jonathon Rea, they soon had the crowd dancing.
The lesson seemed to be over when the song ended, but several excitedly shouted, “Let’s do it again.”
And so they did. Again and again.
