Dublin: 13 °C Tuesday 19 June, 2018

This is what happens when you ask people to sing in Irish at 4am

Props to the ladies belting out Óró, sé do bheatha ‘bhaile while doing the Macarena.


MOST PEOPLE LIKE a good sing-song, especially those carried out in the wee hours (unless it’s in your neighbour’s house).

With this in mind, Ravelóid – an Irish language music festival – set up a camera in Dublin city at 4am and asked passersby to sing as Gaeilge.

Some people got really into it – and we’re glad they did.
