AN IRISH nursing homes have stepped up to the Jerusalema challenge-- and is daring others to do the same.
The Ealga Lodge nursing home in Birr, County Offaly was inspired by the recent Garda dancing video which has gone viral across the world with over one million views, and staff and residents got together to give it a try.
In an absolutely brilliant effort, Ealga Lodge Staff members took to the patio of the nursing home to begin the Jerusalema video, with one talented staff member performing an Irish dance, in order to entertain the residents.
But it wasn't long before the staff were joined by the residents themselves, who took part in the reel with a performance that would put Michael Flatley to shame.
Staff member Stephen Henry Tabb, sharing the video on social media, said Ealga Lodge was challenging "all nursing homes in Ireland to do the same".
Since posting their video, Ealga Lodge have been "overwhelmed with all of the likes, shares and lovely comments".
A spokesperson said they were "so proud of our amazing team here in Ealga Lodge, where we work hard to create a fun and friendly atmosphere for our residents".
