The Fleadh Cheoil Chiarrai is a celebration of music and dance in the Kingdom. But not all the craic takes place at the formal competition or even the scheduled gigs. As so often in Ireland it can be an impromptu performance.

In Mick Murt's pub there was one such performance. This had a modern theme though -the trials of flying with Ryanair.

Set to the tune of country classic Ghost Riders in the Sky, it's absolutely brilliant.

I won't spoil it by giving you the lyrics, you can enjoy it yourself. Just think, a few years ago these performances were still going on - but only the privileged few got to see them.

Ryanair how are you
