An Irish dancing flashmob takes over square in the Portugese capital of Lisbon

AN IRISH dancing school in Lisbon surprised early morning commuters with a flash mob of Irish dancing for St Patrick’s Day.

The group, from Rince na Lisboa, a local school of Irish dancing, took to the picturesque surroundings of Padrão dos Descobrimentos, a monument in the Portuguese capital, for their display.

The school, which is open just over a year, organised the flashmob with the Irish Embassy in Portugal.
