North Country St. Patrick's Day Special

In keeping with the St. Patrick's Day holiday, here is a video from WPBS-TV featuring these Irish Dancers. The goal of this Northern New York Irish Festival is to raise money to bring children from Ireland to Northern New York for four weeks in the Summer time. See their NNY Irish Festival website for details.

Text describing the above video says it is raw footage of dancers from the Johnston School of Irish Step Dancing who are visiting and performing during the WPBS Spring into March Membership drive being held March 6th through March 14th. The dancers are representing the celebration of the 25th North Country Goes Green Festival being held March 11th through March 14th at the Dulles State Office Building in Watertown, NY. The school holds classes in Syracuse, Fayetteville, Watertown, and Utica, NY.
