PHOTO: REUTERS It was supposed to be a sideshow a six-minute slice of traditional Irish culture given a glitzy makeover and squeezed into an interval during the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest. But Riverdance stole the show on that spring night in Dublin and has since gone on to become one of the biggest showbusiness phenomena the world has ever seen. Since the troupe first pranced across the Eurovision stage clicking their heels and high-kicking to the sound of Irish fiddles and flutes Riverdance has played over 6000 times in more than 220 venues. It has visited 27 countries from Mexico to Malaysia played before more than 16 million people and been seen on television by 1. 5 billion viewers — 300 times the population of Ireland. Sales of Riverdance merchandizing have netted more than US$35 million worldwide. There are more than 6 million Riverdance videos spread across the globe and 2 million CDs… Next month the river flows home to Dublin for a special 10th anniversary show in the intimate and ornate surroundings of the 19th century Gaiety Theatre. It will be produced by Julian Erskine who has worked with Riverdance almost since its conception and who still recalls the moment in 1994 when Irish dancing suddenly became sexy. Star quality Erskine was at the Gaiety on the night of the Eurovision Song Contest working on a production of Sean O’Casey’s classic Irish drama The Plough and the Stars. Eurovision was taking place at The Point on the other side of the city. “We were backstage with half an eye on the television when Riverdance came on” he said. “The room went quiet and everyone just stood and stared in amazement at what was happening on the screen. “By the end of the performance I was one of those wide-eyed innocents jumping up and down shouting how wonderful it was.

Large crowds gathered to listen to her before Cllr Frank Chambers kept the political vein going when he belted out a number of songs to great applause. Jerry Cowley TD was also in attendance but he declined to follow his colleagues lead but promised he would perform next year.
