John Conneely dances a reel in his unique style.

Gay Byrne introduces John Conneely from Knock, Kilshamuck, Co. Mayo, who performs a reel in his own unique style to the music of 'George White's Favourite' performed by John Cleary. The remarkable thing about this is that John had previously been hospitalised for months following a fall on a building site in England which left him with a broken back.

Ciaran MacMathuna who is sitting in the audience describes John's unique dance as "the fastest reel in the west".
