merry ploughboys

UCD is pretty great at organizing fun (and free!) little excursions for us American international students, the first of which was a night of traditional Irish music and dance at the Merry Ploughboy Pub.

I was, and still am, a bit confused about the namesake. This four-man band seemed to also be called “The Merry Ploughboys,” which begs the question, which came first? The band or the pub? Are they one and the same?

Anyway, I’ll let this video do the talking. Seriously in awe of his fiddling skills.

And of course, the mesmerizing Irish dancing. I was itching to get on stage, and I’m kicking myself for not bringing my tap shoes!

I definitely need to add taking an Irish step dance class while I’m in Dublin to my bucket list, which I recently updated, by the way! Jacked that baby up from 50 to 100. Take a look :)
