Taylor Swift and Irish Dancing
Cairde is an Irish dance group made up of highly experienced and accomplished dancers. The team is made up of seven members: Brian Culligan, Dara Kelly, Ethan Quinton, Francis Fallon, Rhonin O’connell, Seamus Morrison, and Stephen Mcguinnes. In the past, they met regularly in competitions, but they did not decide to collaborate as a team until 2017. The group has a TikTok account and had only about a thousand followers until August of last year when they posted a video of themselves dancing to a Taylor Swift song and immediately blew up on the platform.
