A former dancer with Michael Flatley’s world-famous Irish dance show, “Lord of the Dance, “ Maggie Domingo began her Irish dance journey 20 years ago when she attended her first Irish dance lesson in her Sarasota, Fla., hometown. As a professional member of the Raglan Road Irish Dance troupe for the past four years, Maggie wows audiences and works with children on the Raglan Road stage during participation dances. Maggie is a three-time world medal holder, placing sixth in the World Irish Dance Championships (An Coimisiún) and placing in the top three in every other international major, including the Great Britain Championships and the All-Ireland Championships.
Jake Richardson, of Dunshaughlin Co. Meath, sings and plays guitar and mandolin to perform an impressive repertoire of Irish traditional songs.
Stephen & Abby of Kilmurry Co. Clare are one of the finest traditional Irish music duos around. Stephen (vocals, guitar) & Abby (vocals, fiddle) love nothing better than having the pub crowd sing along and interact.
Emily Jane Furlong is an extraordinary singer-entertainer from Wexford who captivates crowds with her stunning voice.
Raglan Road general manager Alan Delahunt invites everyone to join in the fun: “We’ve been so delighted to see the Facebook Live participation in events during the past few weeks! Irish music and dance are trending, and you can be part of the week-long fun! Join us, and remember to send in your videos.”
