Whilst browsing some Irish tunes on Youtube we found this fun video from the early 80s. The Irish RN was a TV series made in 1983 based on the books of Somerville and Ross set in early 20th century rural Ireland. In this scene, De Dannan members Ringo McDonagh, Frankie Gavin and Jacky Daly play two well known Irish jigs, Haste to the Wedding and The Ship in Full Sail.
