he video was originally shared by Dublin Airport on their Facebook page, where it has been viewed more than 40,000 times and shared more than 150 times.

This is not the first time in recent weeks that Irish acts have entertained at an airport departure lounge.

Meath-based youth group Gluais treated those stuck in Charles de Gaulle Airport to two typically Irish songs to bring some smiles to the bored passengers.

Flights were delayed that evening so the group decided to perform some impromptu songs to keep the passengers and their children entertained," a spokeman for the group told Independent.ie.

The music and dance group, who were in Paris representing Ireland in the Irish Disney Festival, performed their own version of 'Paint the Town Green' and 'Oró Sé do Bheatha 'Bhaile'.
