Walls of Limerick

Category: Irish Ceili/Ceilidh

Dancers line up as couples, two opposite two repeating down the hall.
If you have enough dancers you can organize the dancers into a large circle and keep the dance going continuously around the hall.  Just take the lines and curve them around until the ends meet.
