Raglan Road Facebook Live entertainment schedule for this week-now through May 3!
In early April, Raglan Road launched its effort to share the pub’s popular live Irish music and dance entertainment with fans around the world through Facebook Live performances now scheduled weekly. Anyone can tune in to hear a performance or take a virtual Irish dance lesson. A prize is awarded for the “most fun” video that viewers make and send in after each dance lesson with principal dancer Maggie Domingo, a world medal holder and former dancer with Michael Flatley’s world-famous Irish dance show, “Lord of the Dance.”
Here’s the Raglan Road entertainment lineup on Facebook Live for this week; tune in at Raglan Road Orlando Upcoming Events on Facebook:

Response to the concerts and dance lessons has been “massive,” says pub general manager Alan Delahunt. “The videos we’re receiving are priceless, and the ‘most fun’ video winners receive a Raglan Road surprise gift pack. People who are sheltering-at-home during happy hour or Sunday brunch tune in to join our concerts, and our performers are delighted to have an enthusiastic Facebook audience. The banter has been great between the regulars, musicians, managers and staff. It has been a great way for us to connect with friends of the pub during this strange time.”
