ARCHIVE VIDEO: Sharon Shannon plays trad for a field of cows and they absolutely love it

Sharon Shannon whipped out her accordion and played some trad for a field of curious cows and they absolutely loved it.

The musician stopped near Dungarvan on her way to Youghal and played some music for the Friesian cattle who all crowded around to listen.

One showed its appreciation by licking her knee.

Sharon said she did it "to promote awareness of how beautiful and intelligent they are, and how their lives are just as precious to them as a dog's life is to a dog or our own lives are to us."

She added, "If you love animals and care about the environment, I recommended watching a film called 'Cowspiracy' which exposes the shocking truth about the disastrous effects of animal agriculture on our precious planet."

She linked to a 15 minute version of the film.

The video, which she posted to her Facebook page has garnered 88,000 likes.

Sharon is playing the National Concert Hall in Dublin August 17th.
