By no means the best pub in the city but I'd give anything now to be sitting beside the stove in the King's Head with a big pint in front of me.

Since coming across this post, I've been letting his channel run in the corner of my screen for a good part of the day while getting some work done, and came across a couple of other fantastic dance numbers:

Today I’m joined by Stephanie Keane, sean nós dancer extraordinaire, coming to you from a secret location in East Clare!!

I like that style of Irish dance, with arms that actually move.
