Long before there was Riverdance or Lord of the Dance, there was The Spirit of Ireland which was Ireland’s first national and international success story.

This diverse production offers the audience a spectacular evening of traditional Irish dancing, music and song, performed live by award winning dancers and musicians.

It first toured the Irish Centres and Pan Celtic Festivals in Britain back in 1987, almost ten years before Riverdance would feature as the interval act of the Eurovision Song Contest held in Dublin. The Spirit of Ireland helped to bring Ireland’s rich culture to the Irish Emigrants of Luton, Camden, Harrow and many more Irish Centres the length and breadth of Britain.

The production has gone from strength to strength, touring further afield to the USA, Australia and New Zealand, and has evolved to become one of the most exciting and popular cultural products to come out of Ireland.
