  1. About the holding arms down, I’m not Irish but Belgian, but I’m in the folklore dance environment (I’m part of a Flemish traditional dance group). It is true that the arms were down so you couldn’t see that the were dancing. The exact reason I don’t know anymore, I must. Something with being forbidden to dance.
