Video: Join in a World Record Irish jig attempt in Cleethorpes
IN THE run-up to St Patrick’s Day, O’Neill’s in Cleethorpes is inviting people to join a Guinness World Record attempt.
At 8pm on Thursday, punters from across all 49 O’Neill’s pubs will join together in an attempt to beat the current Guinness World Record for the most people Irish dancing at the same time. The record currently stands at 10,036.
Those wanting to take part should arrive at O’Neill’s, Cleethorpes, from 7pm, with the attempt lasting for five minutes.
As all pubs across the country need to do the same jig, participants will be shown a few Irish dance steps prior to the attempt and can even practice in advance of the event by viewing the video tutorial below.

Michael Carrigan, the manager at O’Neill’s in Cleethorpes, said: “Every year we look at ways to celebrate our favourite event, St Patrick’s Day, while also trying to give something back to the local community.
“This year, which is the fourth year of our Join The Jig events, sees our first ever world record attempt.
“We really want the people of Cleethorpes to join us to help smash the world record and have great fun.
“As well as great craic, we’ll be raising money during the event by selling our legendary St Patrick’s day hats with all proceeds going to Cash For Kids.”
In addition to Join The Jig, the Cleethorpes pub will also host a number of other events to celebrate the anniversary of the much-loved Irish saint, including the special needs disco tomorrow.
And, of course, celebrations for St Patrick’s Day – this Sunday – start from 10am and include an Irish Breakfast for just £4.99 until midday and live music with Murphy’s Law from 7pm.
