A call was sent from Ireland around the world, asking children and young people to beat their drums as part of Cruinniú na nÓg.

From Bali to the United States, from Guinea to Clare, from Dublin to Armagh young people took up the challenge and this is what they made.

Beat your Drum is presented by The Creative Ireland Programme in partnership with Glór in Ennis and created by Brian Fleming.

You can see the film at 9.55am on RTÉ2 today or watch another version here!

If you are inspired it's not too late. The workshops are still available HERE!

Keep an eye on this special Beat Your Drum Facebook page for more events during the day like...

Brian is bringing new life to the Millennium drum at noon.

Watch the most popular workshop at 4pm (Native American Snake Dance).

And for one last hoorah there is a bonus workshop going out at 8pm led by Brian – it’s a wild one!
