Irish dancers set Riverdance world record in Dublin

Irish dancers have set a world record in Dublin for the longest Riverdance line.

More than 2,000 people from 163 dance schools in 44 countries gathered on the banks of the River Liffey on Sunday.

The previous record of 652 people dancing in a continuous line was held by Nashville, Tennessee in the United States.

The Dublin performance was led by New Yorker Jean Butler, the lead dancer in the first ever show of Riverdance in 1994.
